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.

NLPS receives funding from the W. Garfield Weston Foundation
The Members of the Board are very happy that the NLPS was chosen to be one of six recipients to receive funding from the W. Garfield Weston Foundation in 2016. We are grateful for such support. Saving and restoring our historic Lighthouse is important work that will benefit the whole area.
"The Nottawasaga Lighthouse is such an important part of this community’s identity,” said Geordie Dalglish, a Director of The W. Garfield Weston Foundation, “preserving landmarks of this nature is integral to maintaining the essence that makes Collingwood beautiful and unique”.

Our Lighthouse has been re-wrapped with stronger material which will protect the structure from the elements and slow down the deterioration. The joints were glued & the seams taped. Many thanks go out the fantastic four who never gave up: Robert Square, Doug Hackbart, Stephen Emo & Erle Heintzman you Light up our lives!
