For the past 2 years the Museum’s water related events have been limited by a lack of dock space. New docks being built by the Thousand Islands Boat Museum (TIBM) will make possible an expanded boat show and parade, participation in several waterfront festivals, a cross-border shuttle, and a variety of in-water exhibits and public events.
The dock project was approved by the Town of Gananoque in 2014. It has since been approved by all governmental agencies including Transport Canada, Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority, Department of Fisheries, and the Ministry of the Environment. Construction is underway, and is scheduled for completion in April 2016.
The Museum is paying for the construction of the docks with generous donations from the founding board members, private donors, the Thousand Islands Community Development Corporation, the Antique Boat Museum, and local businesses.
Together with the TIBM the community is creating a sense of place for those who live here and visitors to the waterfront.
Bringing the heritage of the St. Lawrence River, the 1000 Islands, and the magic spirit of the region to life.
