Effective Wednesday, September 22, 2021, under the Ontario Reopening Act (O. Reg. 364/20), all members and guests entering the Greater Niagara Boating Club for the purposes of socializing and remaining indoors will be required to show their Proof of Vaccinations (2 full doses plus 14 days since the second dose) and government-issued ID

There are exemptions:

  • Employees, contractors, repair workers, delivery workers, students, volunteers, inspectors, or others who are entering the business or organization for work purposes and not as patrons;

  • Children under 12 years of age;
  • Medically exempt persons with proof of same.

All other public health measures such as masking and physical distancing continue to apply.

Bar and Kitchen Staff will be checking and recording this information. Failure to comply with the requirements of O. Reg. 364/20 can result in charges under the Act. If charged under Part 1 of the Provincial Offenses Act (POA) set fine amounts are $750 for individuals and $1,000 for corporations.

We acknowledge some of the difficulties this may cause for some of our members but please recognize that we are bound by the Regulations. Please be respectful to our Bar and Kitchen Staff and understand that they are doing their jobs.

Your patience while we work through all of this together is anticipated and appreciated.

Each membership level includes the member’s spouse/significant other, dependent children under the age of 18, as well as children under the age of 22 who are full time students or dependent children. The member is fully responsible for the actions of said individuals and any consequences resulting from their inappropriate actions will be levied on the member.

An individual who wishes to participate in the social activities of the Club and the benefits of the Clubhouse but does not require marine facilities. A clubhouse member may not vote on any club matters nor hold office in the Club and has no marine privileges. Specifically, “Clubhouse” stipulates that the individual’s membership is confined to the Clubhouse and its social activities and does not extend to the area below the gate.

CONDITIONS OF MEMBERSHIP

  1. Each dock is assessed ten (10) hours of volunteer service each membership year (January to December);
  2. Any Boating Member who has failed to complete their hours will be assessed a surcharge imposed by the Board for each hour not completed;

HOW TO APPLY
Anyone wishing to apply for a Boating Membership must hold a paid-up Clubhouse Membership and have the sponsorship of a current Boating Member in Good Standing. Applicants without a Sponsor will be passed over for those with a Sponsor. Once accepted, a Boating Member is on probation for one year.
