Welcome to Howe Island Ratepayers Association Community Site



The Howe Island Ratepayers Association (HIRA) is an incorporated, non-profit organization that endeavors to represent the concerns of the islanders. Howe Island is located in the world renowned 1000 Islands in the St Lawrence River.

The express and only purpose of HIRA is the "PRESERVATION AND IMPROVEMENT OF HOWE ISLAND, OUR QUALITY OF LIFE, AND OUR PUBLIC SERVICES".

You are not alone...as a member of HIRA, you become part of a community voice on important issues that impact Howe Islanders. HIRA supports the orderly development of Howe Island in such a manner as to preserve and enhance the value of the residential, rural and agricultural properties and aspects of the island. However, should issues arise that could negatively impact islanders, through HIRA, elected officials will be aware of your opinion(s) in a timely and businesslike manner.

HIRA welcomes you to 'your' Web site. Let this site be your virtual gateway to the local community and the internet. We encourage you to use this web site for the valuable and timely information it offers. We want your feedback...Contact Us if you have any questions and of course, your Suggestions are welcome.

Howe Island Ferries: Request for Cameras
Announcements Council Members:

I have attached a letter from HIRA relating to your taking steps to improve ferry service for Howe Island.

Click here to read the letter

We ask that you give very serious consideration to our request. HIRA would be pleased to assist in any way we can to see to the implementation of our request.

The improvement of ferry service will necessarily involve a number of steps (such as improving the speed of the County ferry, building a fund to replace the Township ferry, determining fares, deciding whether to charge vacant landowners etc). We believe that the installation of cameras at the Howe Island terminals will be an important new first step.

Best
