In 1973 the OPAS merged with Fire Management to become the Aviation and Fire Management Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources.

In 1991, the Ministry of Natural Resources moved its Fire and Aviation division to the Sault Ste. Marie airport allowing the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre to occupy the original waterfront hangar.

The CL-415 waterbombers, amphibious Twin Otters, Turbo Beavers and light helicopters of the Ministry of Natural Resources Aviation, Forest Fire and Emergency Services Branch can often be seen today flying over the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre.
