MLA Area Map
The Muskoka Lakes Association is a non-profit organization that was created in 1894. It is a member-based association lead by a volunteer Board of Directors. Its mission is to promote the responsible use, enjoyment and conservation of the unique Muskoka environment.
The MLA is itself a member of the Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Association (FOCA).
Our efforts are concentrated in four areas:
Of course! Anyone can be a member of the Muskoka Lakes Association and we'd be happy to have you join us.
As a new member, you will receive a welcome package.
Secondary memberships were created for families sharing the same cottage.
It works for siblings sharing the same cottage or even for a second generation. As MLA members, your children sharing the same (holiday) home are allowed to be secondary members.
Secondary members benefit from the same advantages as the primary members: they will receive our newsletter ShoreLines and monthly NewsBites, and they will have their own listing in the Yearbook, although they won't receive it.
Secondary members can order a yearbook while renewing their membership or come by the MLA office to purchase one for $30.
As a member of the MLA you will be:
Yes, you can. We offer different services than your local association and we'll be happy to have you join.
Yes, you can join us. We represent waterfront property owners all across Muskoka, whether on big or small lakes.
It's still ok to join us! If you have the will to help us protect the Muskoka we love, it's not a requirement to be a cottage owner.
Lots of cottagers who leave Muskoka are still members of the MLA. As a member-based organization, we appreciate all the support we can get.
This is not a problem! We can tailor the member directory in our Yearbook the way you want it to be. Just let us know when you are joining or renewing your membership, and we'll make sure that your information will stay confidential.
While we encourage you to become a member, you can still help us if you are not! As a volunteer-lead organization, we are always looking for extra hands.
