Hello,
 
I am writing on behalf of the Ontario Geographic Names Board regarding an application we received here at the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, for a proposed name of an unnamed island in Lake Nipissing. We are conducting surveys of local residents and businesses to determine what name(s) are in local usage and if there is support for this name proposal.
 
We have posted online questionnaires for your recent name proposal on our website, along with proposals for other features elsewhere in the province. The questionnaires are also being promoted in a limited degree through social media on MNRF’s channels, and we will directly connect with local First Nations, government offices, organizations and businesses.
 
Link to questionnaire:
Farquhar Lighthouse Island - in the east end of Callander Bay, Lake Nipissing
 
The deadline for responses is December 31, 2021.
 
Please fill it out if you know the island and widely share the questionnaire link with other individuals or groups who have knowledge of the feature in this area and may be interested in the naming of this feature. We hope to receive as much input as possible from local residents so that the Board has as much objective information as possible for making their decision and subsequent recommendation to the Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry. If a hard copy of the questionnaire is desired, please print out a copy from the website or contact me for assistance.
 
Thank you very much in advance for your input, it is very much appreciated. If you have any questions feel free to contact me directly.
 
Sincerely,
 
Yves Blanchard
Ontario Geographic Names Specialist (acting)
