The group that has been battling to preserve the Nottawasaga Lighthouse has received its charitable status from Revenue Canada.
Promotions chair Nick Brindisi says the group can now issue receipts for donations which will allow them to really ramp up their fundraising efforts.
“It adds legitimacy to the organization. It shows we’re an organization with people doing things and not just talking about it.”
The approx cost of the restoration for the 90 foot tall tower is just under 2 million dollars.
