Exciting News! Parks Canada’s Lake Superior NMCA team will be opening a small visitor centre in the newly-constructed Terrace Bay Beach Pavilion! This new waterfront facility is located on Lake Superior at the mouth of the Aguasabon River. The pavilion will welcome visitors looking to explore the northern coast of the lake. Upon opening, the centre will offer merchandise sales, community programs, interpretive programming, and celebratory events such as Canada Day and Lake Superior Day. A 300m boardwalk extends from the pavilion along a nature trail leading to Parks Canada red chairs, located at the eastern edge of the beach. Expect to see smiling Parks Canada staff on site at the Terrace Bay beach starting in Summer 2021. For more details check out the online article.

“RESOLVED THAT Council approve that enforcement of the “fouling of the highways provisions of bylaw 29-2014 be suspended with respect to spring lawn care until spring municipal sweeping operations have concluded. “CARRIED”
What does this mean?

- a) premises with even street numbers on even numbered calendar days.
- b) premises with odd street numbers on odd numbered calendar days.
- c) a maximum of two (2) hours per day per household every other day, depending on street number.”
By-law Officer will monitor usage and fines will be laid as outlined in the by-law. Fines range between $105.00 and $500.00.
