The TIA provides and places shoal markers, nearly 200 starting mid-way on the Bateau Channel, north of Howe Island all the way down river to Brockville/ Morristown on most boating channels from Lake Ontario to Brockville. The TIA has also placed fire pumps and life-saving defibrillators in the region. The TIA celebrates the river, the ecology and the natural biosphere that surrounds us by offering scholarships each year to worthy high school students in Canada and the US.

Most of the work is done by volunteers except for the placement of the 200 ROCK and SHOAL markers. All expenses are covered by dues, grants and donations.

2016 AGM Photos

On Saturday, July 16th 2016 at 8:30am we held our famous annual shore breakfast and annual general meeting. These are few pictures from that fun event in previous years.  Tell your friends and neighbours to join if they haven’t already! 



One of the most visible functions provided by TIA is helping boaters avoid many of the dangerous shoals that populate the St. Lawrence River. Nearly 200 shoal markers are placed every spring from mid-way on the Bateau Channel, north of Howe Island, all the way down River to Brockville/Morristown.
