Ranking up there with the top canals in the world, the Trent-Severn Waterway is an engineering marvel but not just a pretty face for tourism.
It’s getting busy on the waterway as the navigation season opens this weekend and continues through Thanksgiving, connecting the playgrounds of Lake Ontario and Lake Huron.

The waterway flows 386 kilometres, linking the Bay of Quinte to Georgian Bay through a system of rivers, lakes, canals and locks.
Operated by Parks Canada, the waterway is Canada’s largest national historic site.
Parks Canada says the “romance” of the Trent-Severn has evolved from its roots in the 1800s as a commercial/military shortcut across central Ontario.
