Taken in dense mixed forest near a lakeshore, Sept. 6, 2021 - white wing bars. Not the clearest image, and only one of them! Thanks to all respondents!

Off the top of my head, Baltimore oriole female. Need to double-check if any other orioles are possible in Ontario, or if immature male is a possiblity.

edit: yep, you can forget about the othe orange-ish orioles, they're too far away. It's a Baltimore, though it's not easy to tell a female from an immature male.

Blackburnian Warbler is also a much better fit in terms of date. The nearest September eBird record of a Baltimore Oriole to Espanola is from Tobermory, over 100 km to the south.
