Chambly Canal
National Historic Site

Skating and a breath of cold air

Located on the left bank of the Richelieu River southeast of Montréal, the Chambly Canal stretches nearly 20 kilometres between the municipalities of Chambly and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu.

Eight of its nine locks and a bridge still operate manually. A small paradise for cyclists, boaters and hikers, the Chambly Canal site offers a moment of pure relaxation in an environment carved out by more than a century of history.
