A must-see tourist attraction in western Montreal, the Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site is a waterway maked with over 150 years of history. It is also a verdant place offering spaces for walks and relaxation. By 2020, over $14 million will be invested to protect this valued site and to ensure safe, high-quality visitor experiences.

During the work, navigation in the canal will be maintained at all times. Rare obstructions may occur in the navigation channel, but infrastructure work will be conducted in such a way as to have minimal or no impact on boat activities.
