MarinaThe Lake Windermere Ambassadors’ Board has been designated by two local governments as the Lake Management Committee (LMC). The LMC provides comments to local government on applications for alterations to the foreshore. These comments are advisory and non-regulatory. As the LMC, we also provide education to the community about the Lake Windermere Management Plan.

We are working closely with the District of Invermere (DOI) and the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK) to provide information to people who live and recreate around Lake Windermere.

Protecting the Lake’s Edge: Government Regulations

The RDEK and DOI have used the Lake Windermere Management Plan as a guide for developing some new regulations. The regulations are going to be put in place to better protect wildlife and lake health — and therefore protect our investments and quality of life!
