We would like to ask for your continued support of the Lake of Bays Association (LOBA); or if you're not currently a member, please become one. The 2020 membership year runs from November 1, 2019 to October 31, 2020. The Association and our 100+ volunteers, work to protect Lake of Bays by:

  • Testing, analyzing and reporting on lake water quality annually - read the reports.
  • Coordinating a discount propane program exclusively for members.
  • Monitoring proposed development on the lake and taking action where appropriate. LOBA is currently seeking party-status to an appeal of the Langmaid's Island proposed development--supported by your generous donations to the LOBA Action Fund.
  • Performing public outreach about invasive species at public boat launches.
  • Keeping supporters up-to-date through our Yearbook, Current Connection newsletter and these electronic NewsFlashes.

As a non-profit organization, we work to keep costs low. Save us printing and mailing costs by clicking or calling to renew or join.

The Township of Lake of Bays is reviewing and consolidating its two existing zoning by-laws and creating a new Community Planning Permit System (CPPS) to implement the policies of the Township's Official Plan.

Dwight Community Centre

Saturday October 5, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
