Assistance for this initiative is being provided by Ontario 150 Community Celebration Program led by the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.

“This is an excellent opportunity to get a glimpse inside of a facility and see how waterpower has shaped Canada over the last century and a half,” says Stephanie Landers, Communications and Public Relations Advisor, for the OWA. “If you are in the Muskoka area this Saturday, be sure to stop by.”
