FOCA Association Members are groups who represent lakes or roads, and who have paying members. The annual fee for Associations is $125 plus $3.25/member. Association benefits include tools and resources, a vote at the FOCA AGM and access to the FOCA member rate on Commercial General Liability and Directors & Officers Insurance. Your Association members can access all FOCA’s membership benefits, including the boat and cottage insurance program CottageFirst, and all other offers listed on our Benefits webpage.

Question: If my lake association is a member of FOCA, am I a member?
Answer: Yes! If you are a paid member of one of FOCA’s member Associations, you are a FOCA member and can access all the benefits of membership, including Members-only resources on this website. Look for your Association name here:
Cottage, lake and road associations are the backbone of waterfront Ontario.
FOCA members live within the landscape, and are an integral part of the rural community. Despite the sometimes humble trappings of lake meetings, and the casual clothes, folks in cottage country are dedicated and passionate, vested in the future and intimately familiar with the resources, special attributes and changes happening on our lakes and rivers.
How does FOCA help Member Associations?
As a membership organization, Associations are FOCA’s core supporters. We were encouraged that our last membership survey indicated 90% of our member Associations saw membership figures steady or up, over the prior year. We want you to thrive!
