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.

Collingwood Yacht Club
Jim Kilgour was a long time member of the Collingwood Yacht Club, serving as Commodore in 1980. This week the CYC honoured his memory with a generous donation to the NLPS. Restoration of our Light was one of Jim's passions. Here we see Commodore Al Woolnough presenting to Jim's sisters Jan and Nancy.
"The CYC is pleased to present a cheque to the NLPS. Although the 30 m high structure is no longer lit at night, it and the Collingwood Terminals are still icons welcoming boaters to the Collingwood Harbour. We commend those involved in trying to save this historic Lighthouse.
The CYC will be participating in the Ontario Sailing/Row Ontario COAST program. We hope to partner with the Town in a “Get Out on the Water” program.
Sunday, June 25th 2017 the CYC will host our first “Community Care Sail” to raise funds for the General and Marine Hospital. Participants will enjoy some time on the water on a member owned power or sail boat followed by a buffet at the club house prepared by club members."

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!
