Serving Cottagers from Swift Rapids to Lock 42
The Sparrow Lake Association (SLA) was established in 1926 by a group of concerned and caring cottagers who thought a committee should be established to look out for the best interests of all cottagers on the lake and surrounding area. The SLA has been in existence since that time, and has provided different services, organized events, advocated positions to various levels of government, and kept cottagers informed on cottage related topics.
The SLA, a not for profit corporation, is predominantly a social and environmental advocacy group. We organize events, that allow cottagers to come together, for social reasons. We also monitor environmental issues, to ensure the longevity of the lake. Recent issues have been water levels, boating safety, development, and fish habitat.
The SLA also works on projects for the safety and benefit of all cottagers. Water testing samples are done every summer, to test the water quality and are recorded with the Ministry of Natural Resources. We work in conjuntion with the O.P.P. (Ontario Provincial Police) to ensure water safety guidelines are understood by the boaters and enforced for the safety of all cottagers.
