Regions/Members - Eastern

Eastern

Eastern Ontario includes the Ottawa Valley north to Algonquin Park and is bordered on the east by the raging Ottawa River. Major waterways including the Bonnechere River and Rideau Canal Waterway connect many of the lakes in the area.  Besides the urban areas along Lake Ontario, the majority of Eastern Ontario consists of small towns, many lakes, forest and the granite of the Canadian Shield. Local, municipal government is an important point of contact for many rural, waterfront issues. FOCA has compiled a comprehensive list of municipal contact information for your area which can be found in the Municipal Contacts link at left; these documents are searchable.

This region has approximately 75 FOCA member associations.
