Mattawa Voyageur Country Tourism Region isn't wasting any time passing bylaws to enhance its multi-use trail system.
The area has become the first Ontario Tourism Region to update and pass new by-laws approving changes to the Ontario Off-Road Vehicle Act.
The legislation changes in Ontario came into effect on July 1st.
The update permits the use of UTV’s commonly known as Side by Sides and allows passengers to ride along with drivers on approved ATV models, on the shoulder of municipal roadways.
