This list may no longer be accurate and I would guess the number of lakes listed here have most likely doubled or tripled by now. If you know of other “restricted access lakes” in this area or other areas please let us know so we can provide more accurate information for our readers. 2/13/2018
Well as far as we know you can still take photographs and hike around these lakes, but if we don’t put a stop to this nonsense those additional restrictions won’t be too far away.
Thanks to our hard-working OntORA members in Timmins, you can now review the official MNR list of “Restricted Access Lakes” in the Timmins area.
Here is the Official MNR List of “Restricted Access Lakes – Timmins, ON District”:
- Timmins – Restricted Access Lakes (page 1)
- Timmins – Restricted Access Lakes (page 2)
- Timmins – Restricted Access Lakes (page 3)
A lot of the acronyms are jibberish to most of us, but the MNR’s intent is clear.
It’s time for the MNR to hold public meetings in each district across Ontario to explain in detail EXACTLY what each and every one of these restrictions means. I’m sure a thorough question and answer period with each public meeting would reveal a lot of hidden agendas as well.
