Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Pefferlaw Dam in Pefferlaw, Ontario was constructed across the Pefferlaw River in the 1820s and has become a local landmark, contributing to the distinct charm and character of the area;
  • The Dam’s structure has deteriorated and been deemed ‘unsafe’ by the Lake Simcoe Regional Conservation Authority, and requires significant rehabilitation and repair;
  • The local ecosystem will be drastically affected by changes to the water flow and other impacts related to the Dam’s deterioration; and
  • The Pefferlaw Dam has cultural, historical, environmental, economic and recreational significance to the residents and visitors of Pefferlaw, Ontario.
We, the undersigned, residents of Pefferlaw and other concerned citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to partner with the Government of Ontario and provide the federal funding required to rehabilitate the Pefferlaw Dam.
