The Nottawasaga Island Lighthouse
One of six “Imperial Towers” built on the Great Lakes, the Nottawasaga 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.
Having saved countless lives through its 159-year history, the life of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse is now endangered itself 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.
