Why join the BRLA?

The BRLA provides valuable services to all those who use the lake and share in its resources.

Membership fees pay for:

  • 115 shoal markers from Narrows Lock to Poonamalie Lock. The BRLA installs, monitors and removes these markers each year, ensuring safe passage for boaters on the lake. 
  • Annual Canada Day fireworks display, off Cow Island. This display is enjoyed by hundreds of boaters, cottagers, visitors and residents from all around the lake.
  • Important programs and research to protect and preserve the health of the Rideau Lakes water, shores and wildlife habitats.
