Opening of US Border

On July 5, 2021, Canada updated its Covid 10 Guidance Rules for Vaccinated Travellers entering Canada.  While the change provided relief for fully vaccinated Canadians entering Canada from quarantine, the rules do not provide relief for American citizens who meet the exact same vaccination criteria, from entering Canada to spend time at their seasonal homes.    The Association has written and requested to the Prime Minister, that an exemption or variation from the rule be granted to Americans who own residential property in Canada, can provide an acceptable negative Covid 19 Test, and who can demonstrate acceptable proof of  an approved and full Covid 19 vaccination.

American citizens who are residential property owners and taxpayers in Canada have been unable to visit their properties for over a year, and comprise a significant portion of the residents of Bobs and Crow Lakes.  Our neighbours to the south have played an important and historical role in the preservation of the beauty and uniqueness of these two lakes.

The full letter will be posted to the website.

For the current cottage season now in full swing, please continue to follow local public health guidelines around the lake.   It is especially important for the protection of friends, neighbours and family to obtain both doses of whichever vaccine is made available to you through your local Public Health Agency.

The 3rd Wave in Ontario is down to levels not seen since September 2020.   We all should remain patient and vigilant to make sure our actions do not contribute to a resurgence or 4th Wave.
