Langmaid's Island Case Management Conference

Please be advised that the LPAT Case Management Conference scheduled for Tuesday July 23, 2019 for the Langmaid's Island application has been cancelled until further notice.

With recent changes in the Planning Act, counsel (lawyers) involved in the hearing requested an adjournment until such time as the regulations that will affect this hearing have been adopted. This is expected by the end of August 2019.

We will advise you when a new date is set.

Silent Boat Rally
Saturday August 3, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Silent Boat Rally is for kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. Join us for a chance to paddle the beautiful winding Oxtongue river, explore small bays and meanders along the way. We will launch our crafts below Marsh's Falls and paddle down the Lower Oxtongue River to Lake of Bays and then return to the Falls. Participants will learn about the plants and animals that can be seen on the river. This is 8 kilometres of easy paddling in protected waters followed by a light lunch. This rally is a joint venture of the Lake of Bays Heritage Foundation and Lake of Bays Association. Cost $20 per person.
