Lachine Canal National Historic Site – In the Heart of Montréal

Located in Montreal, the Lachine Canal runs 14.5 kilometres from the Old Port to Lake Saint-Louis. The Canal is more than an inland waterway, as it is also an accessible urban park that astonishes with its rich history.

Each year for the last quarter century, millions of visitors have taken over the banks of the Lachine Canal. Whether by foot, bike or boat, the Canal amazes with its stunning scenery and with one of the city's most beautiful multipurpose paths.

The activities and facilities at the Canal give you the opportunity to learn about the history of this site of significance to Canadian industry and navigation, all while enjoying a unique urban environment.
