The Friends of Cabot Head, a not-for-profit organization, was formed by a group of concerned area citizens to take over the restoration, maintenance and management of the historic Cabot Head Lightstation. Agreements were made with the Canadian Coast Guard and then Lindsay Township and now the municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula. In the period from 1994-1996, major renovation work was done on the Lighthouse using limited grant money and volunteer labour and expertise. A recent major renovation was undertaken by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, however, the lease with the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula was not renewed in 2020. Currently, therefore, the Friends of Cabot Head no longer has a sub-lease to manage and offer programs at the light station.
Our current Board members are as follows:
Chair - Will Meneray
Director at Large - Ina Toxopeus
Secretary - Joanne Lamport
Members at Large - Gwen Rollinson, Robert Rollinson
