On Wednesday, October 18th at 7:00 PM at the Parks Canada Visitor Centre (120 Chi sin tib dek Rd., Tobermory) we heard from panelists about trends in long term rental, home energy efficiency, and innovation in future housing options. This event was also followed by a Q&A.

Check out our SOK Talk page for the presentations. The summary and Q&A will be added soon!


The Sources of Knowledge Board thanks the community members and visitors who joined us for a screening of the film Three Waters by local director Scott Parent and daughter Acadia on Wednesday July 26th at the Parks Canada Visitor Centre. This SOK Talk was free of charge and well attended!

If you’ve been to our new Seabins Project page, you may have noticed a lot of opportunities to “learn more“. This is where we’ve been posting additional information about the seabins – what they do, how they work – but also a lot of new articles and information about the impacts of plastics!

See what’s new – like the video How Bad is Plastic and other resources.

The Sources of Knowledge Forum is intended to demonstrate how research in Bruce Peninsula National Park, Fathom Five National Marine Park, the surrounding community, and beyond can contribute to knowledge and understanding of the Saugeen-Bruce Peninsula.

In an effort to further the Sources of Knowledge goal to encourage and enable youth to be stewards of this remarkable place, we also administer an annual Student Bursary Award in partnership with Parks Canada. This bursary program has allowed us to help local students finance their post-secondary education, in areas of conservation and related themes, to work toward a prospective career with Parks Canada.

Our SoK Talk initiative aims to provide ongoing opportunities, outside of the Forum, to share knowledge on a wide variety of special interest topics. Subjects from the past, present, and future that help propagate continuous learning and understanding of the Peninsula and its people.

We acknowledge that SoK operates on the Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The People of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. And we further give thanks to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land.
