Ontario Province Changes to Anchoring Rights update

In late February, the MNRF announced a series of proposed changes that would affect 'camping on the water'. These were intended to address some of the recent challenges with several 'unique' floating accommodations units that have appeared on our waterways.

The initial language gave the impression that recreational boats, used for overnight purposes, would also be caught up in these new proposed changes. Ontario Sailing, Boating Ontario and other partners has been very active on this issue since the announcement and have received calls directly from the Minister, as well as his Chief of Staff. Both have assured us that recreational boats will not be affected.

A revised document has just been provided by the MNRF - please read the announcement here.

Any questions regarding this issue can be directed to Glenn Lethbridge.
