Georgian Bay Association

Who We Are in a Nutshell

GBA is your voice on Georgian Bay. Since 1916, we have taken a leadership role, on behalf of the water-based communities on the Eastern and Northern shores of Georgian Bay, to protect and preserve this precious and fragile freshwater ecosystem for generations to come.

Operating as an advocacy and communications network for 19 community member associations, GBA is a not-for-profit organization with a qualified volunteer Board dedicated to representing the best interests of our members with all levels of government and other stakeholders.

By staying up-to-date on all issues and concerns, maintaining current and active government contacts, and collaborating closely with our community association partners, the GBA is able to ensure careful stewardship of the greater Georgian Bay environment.

Some notable past achievements include key roles in the formation of the Township of the Archipelago, the creation of the Georgian Bay Land Trust, Georgian Bay Forever, and the designation of the UNESCO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve and the Massasauga Provincial Park.

Our activities, and the issues we deal with on your behalf, are constantly evolving, so please check for details of ongoing work.
