Word from the Chief


I want to thank all of you for your great patience in this challenging time. This has been a unique spring for all of us.

I am happy to inform you that in a video posted to Facebook today Friday, May 29, 2020, Chief Anoquot says, “Cottagers are allowed to attend their cottages and start this weekend to get them ready for the summer season.

This means you are free to access your cottage immediately.

The Chief also says “Sauble Beach (SFN Beaches) will remain closed until safety concerns over erosion are addressed. Please be patient.”

We are aware of erosion issues on some properties. If you have concerns after visiting your cottage, please contact Kirk Roote (email: kirk.roote@saugeen.org or 519.797.3039).

The order of the Medical Officer of Health closing all municipal beaches in Grey Bruce has been lifted.  This does not apply to SFN Beaches.

We remind you that the provincial rules for the State of Emergency still apply:

  • Maintain 6′ of separation
  • Wear a mask if you cannot socially distance
  • No more that five people may gather in one place.
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Refrain from unnecessary travel

There is currently no restriction on fires, but we ask you to be careful.

Thank you again for your patience. We will see you at Sauble this summer!
