Sponsor a Shoal Marker

TIA will designate the “ROCK” marker as sponsored by you and will officially recognize it on our website.

Sponsor a Shoal Marker Program

Each year, TIA places nearly 200 shoal markers in Canadian waters between the eastern tip of Howe Island and Brockville. Depending on location, weather conditions and water levels, our shoal markers do eventually break down and need to be replaced.

To help support shoal marking, TIA offers a ” Sponsor a Shoal Marker” Program.

For a fully tax deductible $500 donation, TIA will designate the “Rock” marker that you indicate as your supported shoal. 

TIA thanks the following participants of the “Sponsor a Shoal Marker” fundraising Program
