Rideau Canal Waterway - World Heritage Site

The Rideau Canal is a chain of beautiful lakes, rivers and canals, winding over 200 KM from Kingston, Ontario, at the head of Lake Ontario to Ottawa, Canada's Capital City. One of Canada's historic Canals, the Rideau is maintained and operated by Parks Canada to preserve and present the canal's natural and historic beauty, as well as provide a navigable channel for boaters. Built from 1826 to 1831 and opened in 1832. It has been in operation since that time.

In 2007, we are celebrating the 175th Anniversary of the Rideau Canal. On June 27th, 2007,it was announced by UNESCO that the Rideau Canal had become the newest World Heritage Site. It has become Canada's 14th World Heritage site and the 1st for Ontario.
