Where do I find out about local lake by-laws?

before purchasing on the water, it’s important to be aware of the different restrictions or by-laws the body of water may have. These are different rules and regulations townships implement to keep the community clean and safe, and they’re different in every township. The governing body that regulates the waterways in terms of by-laws, motor rules, and accessibility, is Conservation Ontario. Depending on the location you’re looking in, you can call your local Conservation Authority and ask them for all of the information on that body of water.
