The application process

Mooring at Heather Civic Marina is extremely popular. Once we have opened up the waitlist again, the following requirements must be met before waitlist applications will be processed:

  • Only vessels licensed or registered with Transport Canada are eligible for moorage.
  • Applicants must be able to provide a valid marine survey and current insurance policy with a minimum of $2 million Protection and Indemnity (Marine Liability).
  • To keep the application current it is the responsibility of the applicant to contact the marina office each year between January 1 and March 31 to remain on the active waitlist. After one year a renewal fee of $25 per year is required to remain active. Applicants who fail to check in or do not pay the renewal fee will be removed from the active waitlist.
  • LOA* = Length Over All includes bow sprit, swim grid, dingy, rudder post, or any hardware that adds length to the vessel. Audited vessel specifications that vary from the application will void any offer of moorage.
