As the City of Port Colborne continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic and begins to initiate the safe reopening of various outdoor facilities, as per Government of Ontario guidelines, the public boat ramp will reopen Wednesday, May 19, 2021.  City staff have consulted with key stakeholders including other Niagara municipalities and the provincial government, and based on current Stay-at-Home orders, public boat ramps can reopen.   

The public boat ramp will be available for seasonal boat ramp pass holders and daily passes can be purchased directly at the boat ramp. City staff ask that boaters be courteous to each other, follow social distancing practices, and only boat with individuals from the same household.
