The Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Associations (FOCA) is very pleased to release our new report about the significance of waterfront property owners (WPO) as vital economic contributors to rural communities in Ontario! The report summarizes the survey FOCA conducted last year, highlights the ways WPO in eastern Ontario are participating in their rural communities, and identifies enthusiasm to develop more rural economic initiatives.  

Read case studies about your peers who have already made the move to working from their waterfront community.
