112 Queen St, Unit #2 Lakefield, Ontario, Canada
SunFish is a small, locally owned store on the Trent Severn Waterway in Lakefield, Ontario!

Another way of looking at the economic contribution is that for every $1.00 of revenue or capital expenditure the industry adds $1.09 to Canada's GDP which shows a positive return which all successful industries need to have.
