Canada is a North American country consisting of ten provinces and three territories. Located in the northern part of the continent, it extends from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean. Canada is the world’s second-largest country by total area, and its common border with the United States is the world’s longest land border.

The land that is now Canada has been inhabited for millennia by various Aboriginal peoples. Beginning in the late 15th century, British and French colonial expeditions explored, and later settled, the region’s Atlantic coast. France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America to Britain in 1763 after the Seven Years’ War. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy, culminating in the Canada Act 1982.

Canada is a federal state governed as a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. The country is officially bilingual and multicultural at the federal level, with a population of approximately 33.4 million as of 2011. Canada’s advanced economy is one of the world’s largest and relies largely upon its natural resources and international trade, particularly with the United States, with which it has had a long and complex relationship. Per capita income is the world’s ninth highest, and Canada ranks sixth globally in human development. It performs favourably in international rankings of education, quality of life, government transparency and economic freedom. Canada is a member of the G7, G8, G20, NATO, OECD, WTO, Commonwealth of Nations, Francophonie, OAS, APEC, and the United Nations.

One of our developed properties is nested in Pigeon Lake in the Kawarthas. Whether you enjoy fishing, boating or just relaxing by the water, Pigeon Lake has something for everyone. Anglers will want to enter our season-long Fishing Derby and compete to land the big one, whether it’s bass, pickerel or Muskie! There’s plenty to do for all ages, from volleyball, shuffleboard and horseshoes to mini-golf, baseball, swimming or just relax by the fire pit with friends and family as you gently absorb the fresh breeze and roast marshmallows by the scenic lake views.

In the winter at only two blocks away skate in the Turkey arena, build a snowman, ride your snowmobile through various trails or even go ice fishing a popular sport in the area. There are always weekly activities for children and adults alike, from corn roasts and dances to euchre, darts and bingo – so there’s always lots of fun and laughter for everyone. No matter how you spend your time, the scenic beauty of Pigeon Lake is the perfect setting for your family’s summer escape.

If you are an angler there’s no better fishing than here!

Rocky shoal areas and mass amounts of weeds make Pigeon Lake home to a variety of sport fish. To access the northern part of the lake, Bobcaygeon is near the northwest shore. If looking to fish by boat, the eastern and western shorelines host boat launches. If looking to visit the south part of the lake, you need to travel through a town called Omemee.

Due to the largeness of the lake, Pigeon Lake is great for walleye, muskie, smallmouth bass and largemouth bass. Most people who visit Pigeon Lake fish for walleye.

Muskie
