Since other communities are not opening at the same pace as Chestermere, will we limit those using the lake to Chestermere residents?

No.  This isn’t legally permitted.  Chestermere Lake is owned by the Western Irrigation District and under the guidance of the federal Navigable Waters Act, which means that we cannot discriminate against those using the Lake by where they live. We are limited in our ability to control who can access and use it but we are putting in other measures to keep people safe when launching a boat or on the water. For details on the boat launch, visit www.chestermere.ca/boats
