Community Waterfront Gets A Facelift

McGuinty Government Supports Municipal Infrastructure Development In The North

The Township of Charlton and Dack will transform its waterfront into an enhanced area for residents and tourists to enjoy outdoor recreational activities.

The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC) has provided $70,750 through its Infrastructure and Community Development Program to support the construction and design of the waterfront upgrade.

The improved facilities and services will help attract tourists and promote greater use of the Englehart River waterway. It will also encourage property development along the waterway or elsewhere in the community.

Quick Facts

  • The Municipality of Charlton and Dack has a population of 613; it is an agricultural community situated 35 kilometres between Kirkland Lake and New Liskeard.
  • The waterfront site is located in the hamlet of Charlton on the Englehart River. A hydro dam in Charlton creates Long Lake, which is 45 kilometres long.
