There has been growing community concern about waterway safety along the Bird River, Lee River and Pinawa Bay. To address these issues, the Municipality of Alexander is participating in the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations Committee (VORR) to gather information, receive public input and report recommendations to the Municipality of Alexander.

The recommendations made by the VORR Committee will be reviewed by the municipal councils, with the goal of submitting applications to Transport Canada to have safety regulations put in place.

Between June and August 15, 2020, the committee will:

1.   Conduct a Community Survey that will be available on our website: www.rmalexander.com;
