Welcome to the waters of Lake Superior and our Trilogy of Lighthouses, who’ve warded off ships now, for over a hundred years.

Canadian Lighthouses of Lake Superior Inc. (CLLS) is an umbrella organization that represents a movement to preserve, protect and promote public access.

Incorporated under the Ontario Historical Society CLLS’s duty is to provide public access to these unique heritage locations.

In the upcoming season the group will continue to maintain three lighthouses leases in the region. Porphyry, Shaganash and Trowbridge Lighthouses are maintained by the group and provide a  catalyst for other community groups, government departments and heritage users to engage with our incredibly beautiful area.
