The Carillon Canal is located close to Highway 344 West in the village of Carillon (now Saint-André-d'Argenteuil), halfway between Montreal and Ottawa.

A visit of the historic site includes the existing canal and the remains of the first two buildings, the ancestral home of the collector and the barracks that house the Argenteuil Regional Museum.

Allow at least half a day to take in all the history and pleasant atmosphere.
