FOCA is a non-profit, voluntary organization representing 500 Ontario cottagers’ associations plus individual and corporate supporters.  Since 1963, FOCA has played a key role in ensuring a healthy future for waterfront Ontario.  FOCA developed this website to support your interests in a sustainable future for our precious freshwater lakes and rivers.

Ontario borders on 4 of the 5 Great Lakes, and is blessed with over 250,000 inland lakes that all need our care and attention.

With the support of, and on behalf of, community groups and waterfront property owners across Ontario, FOCA protects your interests:

- Healthy and sustainable environments
- Fair property taxation
- Emergency services / rural crime / fire safety
- Safe boating
- Effective land use planning, and other related issues

For 50 years, FOCA has been dedicated to supporting the interests of Ontario's waterfront property owners. This is accomplished by providing assistance and leadership to Ontario's cottage associations and to our individual members, and through advocating for the long-term interests of our communities.

FOCA promotes sustainable waterfront communities by encouraging positive environmental stewardship, supporting strong community leadership, and through promoting fair and equitable public policy.
