Please take notice that boat launches in Collingwood remain closed to transient boaters until further notice from the Province of Ontario. The Collingwood boat launches are closed under the Province's Emergency Order to close Outdoor Recreational Amenities.

On Tuesday, May 19, the Town of Collingwood will begin allowing marina tenants and seasonal boaters (with valid permit) to load in their vessel and tie to their assigned dock or slip. This will be by appointment only to ensure physical distancing and safety. Boat use in the marina and at the boat launch beyond load-in by appointment, is prohibited until further notice.

Please take notice that restroom facilities will not be available at the Boat Launch and Marina until further notice. Please plan ahead.

The Town of Collingwood is preparing for when the Province will make announcements on allowing outdoor recreational amenities to be open again. When open, boat launches may require the booking of launch times so to maintain physical distancing requirements.

On May 1, Premier Ford communicated the following message:
Marinas may begin preparations for the recreational boating season by servicing boats and other watercraft and placing boats in the water, but are not open to the public. Boats and watercraft must be secured to a dock in the marina until public access is allowed.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
