City extends permit cancellations at Toronto Island Park

The city is extending permit cancellations on Toronto Island Park until the end of July because of flooding.

Officials said more than 300 permits for about 90 groups or individuals have been affected by the flooding, including summer camps.

The cancellations will affect approximately 350 summer camp registrants. Officials said city staff will work with parents on a case-by-case basis to find accommodations in other programs or issue refunds if needed.

Recent rainfall has caused water levels on Toronto Island Park to remain still high and more than 40 per cent of the park is under water.

The flooding also means that ferry service is restricted to island residents until further notice.
