Lieu historique national de Coteau-du-Lac
Located nearby canal de Soulange, this historic site features Canada’s first lock canal and the remains of a fort. You can also see a blockhouse, military building erected in 1813, as the fort, to protect Canada (then a British colony) from possible US attacks. The channel, abandoned since the inauguration of the first Beauharnois Canal, can now be visited, both feet dry!

Construction of the Coteau-du-Lac canal began in the summer of 1779. Built by soldiers using rudimentary tools and techniques, this channel (100 m long and 2.5 m wide) was completed in 1781. It includes 3 locks, each 12 m long, 1.8 m wide and a draught of about 80 cm. It allows to bypass a drop of about 2 m between downstream and upstream of the rapid.

Lieu historique national du Canal-de-Lachine
To ride along the Lachine Channel is to rub Montreal, a vibrant metropolis with a diverse cultural life. Linking its Old Port to Lake Saint-Louis, the venerable channel (it has over 150 years!) is fun to explore by bike. Besides, in 2009, the canal's bike path was ranked third of the most beautiful urban circuits in the world by Time magazine.

Along it, you can, among others, do a picnic and rent a canoe, a kayak or, even, an electric boat. Nearby, you will also find the Atwater market, a place to discover for any food lover!

Built to bypass the impressive Lachine rapids, this canal immerses visitors in the past. It is, indeed, the craddle of canadian industrilization. The presence of this watereway combined to the hydraulic power contributed, in 19th century, to the establishment of several industries on its banks: mills and grain elevators, nail factories, edge-tool, sawmills and wood workshops.

Truly, a trip to Montreal would not be complete without a visit to this channel!

Lieu historique national du Canal-de-Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue

Inaugurated in 1843 for commercial navigation, this channel was heavily used during the second half of the 19th century. At the time, many steam boats, loaded with passengers, went through it daily. Following the opening of the Seaway St. Lawrence, in 1959, he was gradually abandoned. Since 1963, only the pleasure crafts can access it.
