Located on the Big and Lower Rideau Lakes in Eastern Ontario, the Association is committed to long-term environmental protection and service to all who use the lake and share its resources. The Big Rideau Lake Association supports programs in the areas of environment, recreation, government affairs and lake safety.




Why join?

BRLA is committed to long-term environmental protection of our lake. We provide valuable services to all who use the lake and share in its resources. Shoal markers to provide safe passage for all boaters on the lake, the annual Canada Day fireworks display, and important environmental research and advocacy are a few of the services that rely on your membership fees. As a BRLA member, you have access to information about issues of concern and interest related to the Big Rideau Lake community, as well as to our many social, recreational and environmental activities centered around Cow Island, our very own "Jewel in the Lake". Our lake, our legacy. Be involved.
