2023 Boat stickers
Before launching any boat (motor boat, rowboat, canoe, kayak, etc.) on Lake Massawippi, each citizen must obtain a user’s certificate (sticker). This sticker only allows free boat washing at one of the 2 washing stations (North Hatley or Ayer’s Cliff) and does not include the boat launch or the parking.
Changes to the issuance of boat stickers for 2023
Considering the discovery of the zebra mussel in Lake Massawippi in the fall of 2021 as well as the relentless efforts of Bleu Massawippi, the Régie du Parc Régional Massawippi and the lakeside municipalities in order to slow down and hopefully eradicate the propagation of the zebra mussel in Lake Massawippi, the Régie has modified the conditions for the issuance of the user’s certificates for this year:
A resident must provide, as in previous years, a proof of residence as well as a proof of ownership of the boat (permit issued by Transport Canada).
New form for the issuance of user certificates including a section allowing the resident whose boats do not leave the lake to sign in order to act as the first wash certificate.
A non-resident who does not have a mooring place (dock) on Lake Massawippi cannot obtain a sticker. Therefore, a non-resident who takes his or her boat out of the water after each use must obtain a wash certificate ($30 for motorized or with trailer / $5 for non-motorized without trailer) at a wash station to be able to put his or her boat in the water, each time.
A non-resident with a mooring place (dock) on Lake Massawippi must provide proof of rental or occupation of a site on the lake (ex.: lease) to obtain a sticker.
