Membership

Like many Lake Conservation Associations in Almaguin and Ontario, the Friends of Deer Lake want to keep our lake clean and protect its fragile eco-system. As recent as last fall, Deer Lake had its first bloom of blue-green algae, which is a strong indicator of the declining health of a lake. 

 

As a Conservation Association within an Unorganized Township, the Friends of Deer Lake represent a strong community of concerned citizens. Our collective views provide a common voice when dealing with the Planning Board, Ministry of Natural Resources, Fisheries and Oceans, and working with other municipalities and organizations.

 

Our goal is to protect and maintain the beauty of Deer Lake, and provide education and benefits to our members. Membership in Friends of Deer Lake is open to both owners and visitors of Deer Lake.  

Members over the age of 18 have a voice in decision-making through attendance, input, and voting at the Annual General Meeting held each year. Each paid membership receives one voting right. It is not necessary you live in the area in order to support the efforts of the Friends of Deer Lake Conservation Association.

 

Members receive information through newsletters, seminars, special mailings and the web site. Opportunities to serve on the board of directors, the executive committee, or numerous committees are available to members. 

The Friends of Deer Lake Conservation Association is incorporated under the Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.

"There is always strength in numbers and we all benefit from the Conservation

Association’s community voice and
Lake Stewardship"
