Boating and Swimming Safety

In 2001, Tiny’s Council created a Small Watercraft Committee. During the consultation period, the need for speed restrictions received significant support. At that time the limit for power driven vessels operating within 30 metres of the shoreline was 10 km/h in all of Ontario. Tiny Township applied for and received an extension of the 10 km/h speed limit to 300 meters off shore in 2003 because of the shallow water along the shore from Concessions 1 through 16. (Tow boats for water skiers are exempt from the speed limit when heading directly away from or toward the shore.) The OPP is the enforcing body but at present enforcing the speed limit is almost impossible because the 300 m line is not marked in any way.
