What to know before you visit

Over the next five years, Parks Canada will invest $3 billion to rehabilitate infrastructure assets within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.

This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.

When visiting the Rideau Canal, you may encounter one or more construction zones or reduced services while we complete this important work.

  • Plan ahead before you travel to avoid inconvenience.
  • Consult the list of current infrastructure projects on the Rideau Canal located at the bottom or on the left column of this page.
  • Plan your travel route accordingly.
