Ontario Parks Association (OPA), established in 1936, is a registered charitable organization whose focus is on Protecting Tomorrow Today┬«. Through our work as advocates for our parks and open spaces and the training we provide to parks professionals in Ontario, we are helping to preserve our living green infrastructure assets for future generations. OPA is a proud member of the Green Infrastructure Ontario Coalition. 

Paul Ronan, our Executive Director, recently participated in a presentation given to Recreation Manitoba on the Value of Green Infrastructure. Links to recordings of this presentation can be found by clicking here.
