The Buckshot Lake Cottagers Association (BLCA) is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1995. Its principal purpose is to provide services for its members and to represent the interest of both full-time residents and seasonal cottagers of Buckshot Lake in both townships – North Frontenac and Addington Highlands.
BLCA functions on the principle that Buckshot Lake is a unique place where water quality, natural beauty, fish and wildlife habitat, recreational activities, rich biological diversity, social interaction, peace and tranquility are maintained and enhanced for present and future generations.
