Restore, Preserve & Protect the Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse

NLPS Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society


The Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society (NLPS) is a registered charity dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse. Preserving its history for present and future generations of Canadians to enjoy while ensuring its role as a navigational landmark continues.

Since 1858, this lighthouse has saved many lives. It’s our turn. Without funding, this lighthouse will crumble to the ground.

We have done our best to preserve it from further decay. Please help bring it back to it’s glorious state.

Whether you want to simply stay up to date with our progress or volunteer in some capacity, the first step is to BECOME A MEMBER OF NLPS

One of six "Imperial Towers" built on the Great Lakes, the Nottawasga Lighthouse has been an iconic local landmark for over 150 years. With its impressive masonry construction and intricate finishing details of European origin, the Nottawasaga Lighthouse has provided safe passage for both commercial ships and recreational boaters around the treacherous shoals and shallow waters that guard the entrance to Collingwood's harbour.

The life of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse is now endangered and needs saving. Lighthouses such as this have played an integral role in Canada's maritime history and in particular, Collingwood's Shipbuilding past. Although no longer a "lighted" navigational aid, the mere physical presence of this towering structure serves to assist recreational boaters in visually navigating their way safely back to the safe harbour in Collingwood both in good weather and in bad.

We need your help. No contribution to this worthy cause is too small and you too can make a difference in helping us to preserve this unique part of Canada's Great Lakes history. DONATE or VOLUNTEER to help in whatever capacity you feel comfortable with.
