The issue revolves around the classification of float homes in Ontario, where they are currently considered vessels, unlike in British Columbia where they are not. Transport Canada in Ontario has resisted calls to change this classification, prompting a coalition to seek resolution through political means. This coalition includes thousands of residents, over forty cottage associations, numerous municipalities, and political figures. Their aim is to regulate float homes as in British Columbia, focusing on construction standards, mooring locations, environmental controls, and navigational safety.
