Rideau Canal

The Rideau Canal was built on the Ottawa River bordering Ontario and Quebec, in 1832. This Ottawa UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the "oldest continuously operated canal system in North America". It was recognized for its use of European slackwater technology. The 126 mile-long Canal includes portions of the Cataraqui and Rideau Rivers, as well as the Upper, Lower and Big Rideau lakes. A majority of the forty-five locks along the canal are hand operated. The Canal was initially built in preparation of a war with the United States, after a report indicated the US's intent to invade Upper Canada via the St. Lawrence River.

It became a popular commercial artery between Kingston and Montreal. Today, many Central Ontario residents and visitors enjoy the scenic boat tours of the canal aboard the Kawarth Voyageur, from Ottawa, Merrickville, Chaffeys Lock and Kingston. If visiting during the winter months, be sure to strap on a pair of ice skates to skate along 4.8 miles of the Canal, the "world's largest skating rink". While in Ottawa, check into one of the Best Western hotels to enjoy comfortable lodging and excellent guest services.
