Floating accommodations are a novelty camping idea that pose unique and significant risks to the environment and public health and safety, including risks caused by exposure to sewage and grey water, and noise. CELA opposes the use of floating accommodations on waterways for these reasons and recommends camping on watercraft that are not “vessels” be prohibited.
CELA is a non-profit specialty legal aid clinic funded by Legal Aid Ontario. We work to protect human health and our environment by seeking justice for those harmed by pollution and by working to change policies to prevent such problems in the first place. We provide free legal services to people and groups across Ontario that qualify for legal aid.
