Who Does What on Georgian Bay?
Your Guide to the GB4 Organizations Working to Protect the Bay
At GBA and our sister “GB4” organizations, we continue to get frequent questions from Georgian Bay cottagers and other stakeholders about the specific roles of each organization. Why are there 4 entities and what is the difference in their roles? Simply put, who does what on the Bay? Here is a quick summary:
Georgian Bay Association is an advocacy group on behalf of 18 member associations on the east & north shores of Georgian Bay, it is the only one of the GB4 that is not a charity.
Georgian Bay Forever is a science and education charity focused on water issues in the whole of Georgian Bay.
Georgian Bay Land Trust is a charitable land trust that stewards land on the east coast of Georgian Bay & the North Channel, forever.
Georgian Bay Biosphere is a charity that promotes the aims of the UNESCO biosphere on the east coast of Georgian Bay to actively nurture the balance between human activity and the ecosystem
