FOCA Elert – June 2020

Another FOCA ELert has been issued for June 2020. While we will likely not post all Elerts, as you are able to subscribe to Elerts from the foca web site, with Covid-19 and the impact on cottaging we are keeping information front and centre this year.

Short term rentals are now allowed, travel to Canada for cottagers coming from the US is still not permissible. Lake water programs are on hold. And much more.

Special FOCA Members’ Elert – June 2020

During these extraordinary times, FOCA continues our work on behalf of lake and rural road Associations all across the province, and the thousands of families they represent.


While our physical office remains closed, our staff and Board of Directors continue to work digitally, in support of FOCA’s vision of thriving and sustainable waterfronts across Ontario.

This update is being sent to the executive representatives of all our member Associations and to our Supporters, to keep you informed about FOCA’s work, as well as all the services and benefits available because of your ongoing support of FOCA.

We encourage member Associations to share this information with all your member families, to help them understand the value of your annual FOCA membership. Please contact us if you need additional information for an upcoming AGM or newsletter. 

Thank you for being part of the solution for waterfront Ontario!

Sincerely,
Deanna PanitzFOCA Membership & Programs Coordinatorinfo@foca.on.ca   705-749-3622 *  https://foca.on.ca  * Note: voicemail is only being checked occasionally, at this time.
