Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Associations

FOCA is the Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations, a not-for-profit organization representing volunteer associations and individual property owners all across Ontario. We are your provincial voice.

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.

Muskoka Lakes Association

The Muskoka Lakes Association’s mission is to promote the responsible use, enjoyment and conservation of the unique Muskoka environment.

Our efforts are concentrated in four areas:

      • We protect and promote water quality – The MLA operates the most comprehensive water monitoring program of any lake association in Canada.  Known as the Water Quality Initiative, this program focuses on near shore testing, where members really use the water near their residences.  The MLA shares this data with district and municipal governments, and when issues arise, we work with a variety of stakeholders to find solutions.
      • We advocate for responsible government and fair taxation – The MLA believes fair taxation depends on responsible, efficient spending by district, municipal and provincial governments. We invest an enormous amount of time and resources into active monitoring of council meetings and local initiatives.  
      • We promote responsible land use – The MLA advocates for strong environmental standards and smart, forward-thinking land use and development planning that respects, and to the extent protects, the unique character of Muskoka's communities. 
      • We lead on important Muskoka issues - The MLA participates in the efforts of Muskoka's district and municipal governments, reporting back to members and taking action on issues that affect waterfront property owners.

Muskoka Ratepayers Association

The Muskoka Ratepayers is an advocacy group whose objective is to ensure that the Township receives responsible governance from those that were elected to represent us in the Township of Muskoka Lakes.
