As part of the Lake Kashagawigamog Organization’s (LKO) mandate, the organization maintains membership with three primary groups who, on behalf of its members and the groups that they represent, serve as an important voice for major issues at the municipal, provincial and federal level.

The Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations, better known as FOCA, is a non-profit, voluntary organization representing 500 Ontario cottagers’ associations plus individual and corporate supporters.  Since 1963, FOCA has played a key role in ensuring a healthy future for waterfront Ontario. FOCA protects our interests in:

  • Healthy and sustainable environments
  • Fair property taxation
  • Emergency services / rural crime / fire safety
  • Safe boating
  • Effective land use planning, and other related issues

Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners’ Associations (CHA) is a member-driven group of over 45 property owners’ associations, representing more than 77 waterbodies and 12,500 waterfront properties from across the geographical limits of Haliburton County

Their primary objectives are to:

  • improve communication among member associations
  • support and strengthen member associations
  • create synergy, by sharing resources and learning from each other
  • work on projects that are too big for one member association

The Coalition for Equitable Water Flow (CEWF) is a volunteer organization that was formed in August 2006 to represent the interests of approximately 40,000 Ontario taxpayers who own residential shoreline property on the 41 reservoir and 20 flow- through lakes within the Haliburton Sector of the Trent River watershed. The Coalition was formed because our members were concerned with the increasing impact of poor water management decisions on a growing number of shoreline residents on the reservoir and flow-through (RAFT) lakes.
