April 12 Update: The Tsartlip First Nation Boat Ramp is currently closed as construction is ongoing.

Construction at the boat ramp is ongoing as there was some damage to the ramp recently discovered that will need to be fixed prior to opening.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Our entire project team is working together on a resolution and we will update here when we have more details to share about a tentative opening date.

Please be advised that the ramp remains closed in the meantime as it is an active construction site.
