Navigational Aids

Updated May 2024

Approximately 27 Yellow Hazard Markers are deployed on the most dangerous hazards identified by the KLCOA Hazard Marker committee.  All markers are tended by KLCOA Volunteers. This is one of the largest Cottage Association Hazard Marker Programs in Ontario. A map of the Hazard Marker Locations is shown below and can be downloaded at the provided link. 

The Hazard Marker Liability Information has been distributed via Posters, E-Blasts, Newsletters, and the KLCOA Website.  A copy of the Hazard Marker poster is provided below and can be downloaded from this link: HAZARD MARKER POSTER

Additional locations for markers are identified by community members on an ongoing basis. The KLCOA Hazard Marker committee determines whether to deploy new markers based on the KLCOA Navigational Marker Guidelines. 

The KLCOA also coordinates the deployment of “NO WAKE” markers in some of the narrow channels such as the Cabin Island and Blueberry Islands channels to remind boaters to limit speed and reduce wake in these areas that are popular swimming and recreation locations.
