Lachine Canal
National Historic Site

The Canal in winter

The gateway to a network of canals linking the Atlantic Ocean to the heart of the continent, the Lachine Canal paved the way for the urbanization of the island of Montréal's southwest.

Sail in tranquility on the canal, stroll or ride your bike along its banks, enjoy picnics in the park and a variety of urban offerings along the way.

By bike, on foot or by boat, visitors to the Lachine Canal can experience a nature break just a stone's throw from the bustle of the city. Enjoy looking at its activities!
