Experience the Benefits of Membership

For 60 years, the Lake of the Woods District Stewardship Association has been working to preserve and sustain lake life in the region and all that means to us. LOWDSA is the largest association of its kind in Ontario. Our members support our efforts, many of whom travel from across Canada and the US to spend time at their ‘piece of heaven’ in lake country.

Membership is open to residents, cottagers and vacationers – anyone with an interest in this area’s environmental and economic sustainability.

The strength of our collective voice is recognized across the province and we represent our membership through a wide range of committees and working groups related to:

  • Environmental impacts to water quality, fish and wildlife habitat
  • Information on property values and taxation
  • Land use & development
  • Supporting our vibrant area, & communities
  • LOWDSA also keeps you up to date on news and issues via our exclusive to members Lake of the Woods Area News magazine, timely eNews blasts and our Social Media.
