The Key River Area Association (formerly the Key Harbour Association) represents a diverse group of 100 seasonal and permanent residents in northeastern Georgian Bay. Through several active committees and membership in the Georgian Bay Association, we work to promote the interests of our members to Government and other stakeholders. We aim to preserve our pristine corner of Georgian Bay for the quiet enjoyment of future generations of residents and visitors, alike.

Located on the northeast shore of Georgian Bay, our area includes the Key River, the Bustard Islands, the outlet of the Pickerel River and part of the French River Heritage Park. This gorgeous area boasts an interesting historical past, some of the best scenery, wonderful sunsets, good fishing and the most remote isolation found anywhere on the Bay. The Key River Area is located approximately 80Kms south of Sudbury and 100Kms north of Parry Sound. The principal points of access are the marinas at Highway 69 where the highway passes over the Key River.

What does the KRAA do?

Our organization has two purposes. First, we undertake local initiatives for the betterment of life in the area. These projects include the navigation buoys in the river, a children's fishing derby, an annual picnic, a fish habitat program, fire pumps and an air ambulance helipad.

Second, we advocate for the area and its residents with all levels of government on topics of importance to our members, including water levels, government services, land use, etc.

Why should you join?

If you own property in the Key River Area, you should be a member of the KRAA. If you enjoy the local aids to navigation and social events we put on, why not help the neighbours that organize those for you. If you care about the preservation and rehabilitation of the natural environment around the Key River, lend us your support so we can do it more effectively. If you feel your voice would be better heard by various levels of government as part of a larger group, why not join our efforts to have the area's needs addressed.

We are just a group of neighbours that feels we can give back to this wonderful piece of nature with which we've been blessed. Won't you join with us and help, too?
