The Lake of the Woods District Property Owners Association (LOWDPOA) is a vibrant membership-driven organization focused on the sustainability of lake life in our region.

LOWDPOA Lake of the Woods District Property Owners Association

1962 – 2013. For more than 50 years the Lake of the Woods District Property Owners Association has worked together to sustain one of the most beautiful places on earth, and to ensure the experiences we cherish will be passed on to future generations.

Our membership includes not only part time and permanent residents within the Lake of the Woods District, but also those who simply have a keen interest in protecting this beautiful area for generations to come. Members come from around the world to spend time at their special place in the Lake of the Woods District that spans from the Manitoba Border to Vermilion Bay, well north into the smaller lakes and down to the US border.

What brings us together is our shared passion and concern about the overall watershed environment and experience; the state of our lakes, forests, fisheries and communities.

LOWDPOA is active in programs ranging from: environment related initiatives, economic development in the region, member education & communication and fair taxation for waterfront property owners.

Why would I join LOWDPOA?

Do you love the lake? Do you love lake life? Do your children love the lake? Do you live and work in lake country?

Then you should join LOWDPOA; the only group in the watershed specifically focused on representing the interests of members who share a common passion for lake life. ‘Lake life’ includes issues related to property values, taxation, land use and development, our communities, environmental impacts such as water quality, fish and wildlife habitat and ensuring our overall enjoying of our surroundings.

With 1 ½ staff members, 15 directors and close to 4000 members, we are the largest association of its kind in the province of Ontario; a powerful force in Northwestern Ontario and beyond.

We are not limited to waterfront property owners and we are not limited to Lake of the Woods.
