FOCA represents the people who live at the waterfront in Ontario, whether seasonally or year-round. Our members are lake and road associations, some very small and some very large, and every size in between.
Ontario borders on 4 of the 5 Great Lakes, and is blessed with over 250,000 named inland lakes that all need our care and attention.
Healthy Waterways and Watersheds are essential. Waterways provide our drinking water, irrigate our gardens and farms, sustain our plants and animals, moderate our climate and generate our electricity. They are a vital part of our heritage, having served as the "roadways" that opened up Muskoka. They are an essential element of the scenic beauty that attracts our visitors, provide the foundation for our thriving tourism industry, and underlie much of our recreation. Ensuring the quality of waterways requires ensuring the health of the watersheds through which they flow.
In January 2013 the Muskoka Conservancy was born out of the amalgamation of the Muskoka Heritage Foundation and Muskoka Heritage Trust. While their name has changed, their mission is the same – “To nurture, conserve, and protect Muskoka’s natural and built heritage for future generations!” They protect 33 properties throughout Muskoka which accounts for more than 1,800 acres and over 34,000 ft of sensitive shoreline. These properties are protected through direct ownership or through conservation easements.
The #1 mission of Safe Quiet Lakes is to make the Muskoka lakes safer and quieter to ensure the sustainable enjoyment of a treasured shared resource. Safe Quiet Lakes was formed in 2011 by representatives of lake associations in Central Ontario. They work collaboratively with lake community stakeholders to promote safer and quieter lakes.
The Muskoka Ratepayers' Association (formerly the TMLRA) is an advocacy group whose mandate is that of preservation, fairness and enhancement for and with property owners in the Township of Muskoka Lakes and beyond.
With miles of boating and superb quality of life, the Township of Muskoka Lakes hosts visitors from around the world. Many return year after year because no matter where they call home, the Township of Muskoka Lakes is the place they’d rather be.
Gravenhurst is proud to be home to 11,000 or more permanent year round residents and welcomes a seasonal population of equal size to enjoy the many attractions, hiking and biking trails, parks, beaches, heritage locations and culinary, cultural and artistic pursuits.
Bracebridge is located in the heart of the Muskoka, a world famous region known for its cottages, resorts and natural beauty. However, Bracebridge is much more than a summer destination. With an active population of 16,000 permanent residents, the community provides an attractive combination of economic opportunities, urban facilities and services, as well as a highly desirable and vibrant lifestyle.
The Township of Seguin is a thriving municipality home to 4,304 permanent residents that seasonally swells to over 15,000 residents during the summer months. With largely an environmental focus, our community is truly "The Natural Place To Be". Seguin was formed in 1998 through the amalgamation of the following Municipalities: Christie, Foley, Humphrey and the Village of Rosseau. At that time, the western part of the Township of Monteith was annexed to Seguin.
Muskoka has an abundance of things to see and do, the list is endless and the possibilities are unlimited.

The glory of the steam era on the Muskoka Lakes comes alive at Muskoka Wharf with a combination of heritage facilities, shops and restaurants, a Marriott Residence Inn, and of course the home port of the Muskoka Steamships. The 120+ year old RMS Segwun commemorated the Silver Anniversary of her return to service in 2006, joined by the beautifully appointed Wenonah II and the classic steam yacht Wanda III. The R.M.S. Segwun is the oldest operating steamship in North America.
In September 9, 1961, the Port Carling Historical Society was born at the cottage of Marion Catto on the Indian River, and with it were planted the seeds of Mrs. Catto's dream to have a pioneer museum in Port Carling- a museum that would preserve the past history of the area, serve the community and provide a tourist attraction. Since then the dream has become a reality. The museum opened at its present location on James Bartleman Island Park on July 2, 1967, and has grown ever since. It now includes an 1875 log cabin, Marine room, First Nations exhibits, cottaging displays and much for visitors and locals alike to enjoy and learn about this region's unique history.
