Welcome to the Lakeland Alliance


Our Mission


Working together with landowners and partners to protect and improve the quality of the lakes and rivers throughout the greater Kawartha Lakes watershed. 


Why An Alliance?


The shorelines throughout the Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Bancroft regions are some of the most developed in Ontario. Residential development pressures and the impact of some urban landscaping practices are placing mounting pressures on fragile littoral zones and water quality. Shoreline property owners and other lake users are concerned about their impacts on the surrounding natural environment and are seeking tools that will enable them to protect and enhance their aquatic resources.

The Lakeland Alliance provides resources and educational opportunities to assist shoreline property owners in protecting the water quality of their lakes and rivers. 


Who is the Lakeland Alliance?

Alliance Update

April 2015


The Lakeland Alliance regrets to report that funding to sustain our important programming and staff requirements have lapsed.  The Alliance would like to thank all of its past funders and supporters for their generosity and their dedication for our mission.  As a result, we are no longer able to respond to inquiries, attend association meetings and will no longer be the delivery agent for the Love Your Lake Program in the Kawartha Lakes region. 

For those shoreline property owners on Kashabog Lake who are either expecting or who have received your Love Your Lake property report and have questions or concerns please contact the Canadian Wildlife Federation at info@loveyourlake.ca or at 1-877-599-5777 ext. 284.

Thanks to all of you who participated in our Shoreline Advisor Program or the Love Your Lake Program.  Thanks also to all the volunteers and to the regular attendees of our annual Lakeland Conference. 

In Stewardship,

The Lakeland Alliance Steering Committee
