Organization and Structure

The "Thousand Islands Antique Boat Museum Trust" was created in 1993 as the incubator for an eventual Museum. It provided an entity that could receive donations that it set aside in preparation for the eventual creation of an actual Museum.

In 2014, an agreement to lease the Water Street facility from the Town of Gananoque meant that an actual Museum was then possible. The "Thousand Islands Boat Museum" was then incorporated under the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act.

The Trust and the corporation have since been amalgamated into a single not-for-profit, Registered Charity, making the "Thousand Islands Boat Museum" its legal and operating name.


Bringing the heritage of the St. Lawrence River, the 1000 Islands, and the magic spirit of the region to life.
