There are members of our Thunder Beach community who are committed to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nations, Métis and Inuit people. We began our efforts last year and are seeking to continue this summer.
If you are interested in learning more, please do not hesitate to follow the links below or reach out! We are all treaty people, learning and making mistakes together, the objective of this information is to raise awareness and create opportunities for connection. Many people have questions regarding our history, whether that stems from the broad scope of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the tragic recent discoveries at residential schools, or the recent encampment at Thunder Beach. We have included some links, both national and local, regarding the intention and motivation of these initiatives.
Additional Virtual Resources:
We are having ongoing discussions with the Thunder Beach Association about ways to engage our community with opportunities to learn and connect with local Indigenous and Métis organizations, events and community members. We are hoping to start with the Métis Nation of Ontario office as well as the Georgian Bay Native Friendship Centre, located in Midland. We are open to suggestions from all those who may be interested.

Although the situation is generally improving at time of writing, it remains incumbent on all members of the community to remain vigilant against the virus and to continue to practice physical distancing and, as appropriate, the wearing of a mask. Keep in mind that not everyone’s comfort level is the same and it is much more in the spirit of community and good neighbourliness to behave according to the cautious side of the guidance.
You must follow the safety rules while boating, whether on a pleasure craft or SeaDoo. In particular, it is strictly prohibited to have any wake while inside the buoys. All boat traffic should be running perpendicular to the shoreline when inside the swim buoys. If you are doing a cruise along the bay, ensure you are a safe distance from the buoys. This is for everyone’s safety.
Although the official speed limit remains 40 km, our summer community observes a speed limit of 30 km per hour. Should you have visitors, including any tradespeople, please ask that they adhere to the 30 km guideline. We want to ensure a safe summer for all the little ones.
Please also adhere to the following:
Be safe: walk on the LEFT.
THE OPP reminds all Tiny residents that Golf Carts are not allowed on any Tiny roads.
ATVs are not permitted on ANY roads in the Thunder Beach community. See Tiny.ca for further information.
