Canoe For Cancer

The 15th Annual Canoe for Cancer was a great success!  The paddle raised $15,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society!  We also had a few new events running at the park to help support a local charity - Radio for Cardiology, supporting the implementation of an advanced cardiac care centre at Royal Victoria Hospital in Barrie.  These events raised an additional $4,800! What a great achievement!  Thank you to all who supported the event.  


Traditionally, we have always held the Canoe for Cancer on Sunday of the Labour Day Weekend.  However, we have listened to your feedback, and it was decided that the event will be moved to the weekend preceding Labour Day, in the hopes that many more people will be able to participate.  Therefore, the 2016 Canoe for Cancer will be held on Saturday, August 27.

About Us

Gloucester Pool Cottagers' Association has been in existence since 1926 and currently has an active membership of 300+  families consisting of both seasonal and permanent residents, on Little Lake, Gloucester Pool, Baxter Lake and Maclean Lake. The GPCA is the voice of its members regarding political, social and environmental concerns. We support FOCA (Federation of Ontario Cottagers) and have an active Lake Steward program. We keep our members advised by issuing a quarterly newsletter, plus regular email updates.


Where is Gloucester Pool?

Gloucester Pool begins at Lock 45 in Port Severn and runs North East through Little Lake carrying on through Little Chute to the Big Chute Marine Railway.

The lake is 13 kilometers long and is home to at least 20 islands. Little Lake is separated from Gloucester Pool by a channel called the Narrows. The Pool is the last major body of water on the Trent Severn Waterway before Georgian Bay.

Facilities:

The association has a clubhouse in Burrows Bay for event use. It is water access only and has ample docking space.
