Hiking in Algonquin Park for the day, worried about bears. Silly, right?

We are two city people (myself and my mother) who love hiking. Up to this point we've only hiked local conservation areas where the largest animal we may encounter was a coyote or a deer. We've decided to hike the Track and Tower trail at Algonquin Park this coming Saturday, but we are slightly concerned about bears. I am aware this is sort of silly. I have read up on how encounters with bears should be handled, so I feel a bit better. What are you experiences with bears in Algonquin Park? Also open to suggestions for best places to canoe in the area. Thank you!
