Chair, Membership

When you join the Owners’ and Residents’ Association of Lake Bernard you become a member of one of the strongest and most active lake associations in the region. Our membership in 2019 was 257 members.

The Association is made up of a team of volunteers who fight for the quality of the environment, safety and security around the lake to keep Lake Bernard in a state that can be enjoyed by us and future generations. The volunteers:

  • advocate on your behalf with the municipalities of La Pêche and Low and the provincial government on issues that are important to you and your property
  • operate – the bilingual Association website that provides an enormous amount of information including all of the meeting reports, water quality monitoring, news – and more
  • place navigation buoys around the lake where there are rocks
  • monitor water quality monthly and along one-quarter of the lake’s shoreline each year
  • operate a network of Bay Captains who keep tabs on the water in their bays 
  • try to prevent invasive species like zebra mussels
  • work with residents on issues of unauthorized access through private land
  • work with the provincial government and the police on emergencies like retrieving the car from the lake in 2011
  • organize special events like shoreline workshops
  • organize an annual Association Day – a regatta with benefits!
  • create and distribute maps of the lake
  • sell great logo items – hats, mugs, shirts for babies, kids and grown-ups – and more

We need you and your ideas. We always need new people to keep the Association and the Executive fresh and vital. Make a difference by joining a committee, getting involved in your lake community, and meeting your neighbours.

Join us! Simply mail a copy of the completed membership form and your cheque to the address indicated.  Or take advantage of our electronic payment by using PayPal or Interac.
