On June 6, 2023, the Municipal Council for the Municipality of West Nipissing passed a new by-law to regulate the use of municipal beaches. By-law 2023-52 was adopted to ensure that our public beaches remain safe and enjoyable for all users. New signage outlining the regulations and hours of operation will be installed at all municipal beaches.
