The Nottawasaga Lighthouse, constructed in 1856-1858, is one of the few remaining symbols of the region’s marine heritage.
The life of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse is now endangered itself and needs saving. Lighthouses such as this have played an integral role in Canada’s maritime history and in particular, Collingwood’s Shipbuilding past. Although no longer a “lighted” navigational aid, the mere physical presence of this towering structure serves to assist recreational boaters in visually navigating their way safety back to the safe harbour in Collingwood both in good weather and in bad.
The Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society (NLPS) is a registered charity dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse. Preserving its history for present and future generations of Canadians to enjoy while ensuring its role as a navigational landmark continues.
Take in the sites from the shoreline or up close by boat. Princeton Shores Park in Collingwood is a great place to view the island from the shore, to book a sightseeing tour with Collingwood Charters or Collingwood Adventure Voyages.
You can also kayak to the Lighthouse from the Collingwood Harbour, the journey will take 1 hour each way. Please view the Lighthouse safety from your kayak.
