The archaeological remains

Lachine Canal National Historic Site

The Lachine Canal was an important source in hydraulic energy and was instrumental in the industrial and commercial development of the City of Montreal and Canada. By that very fact, it constituted an industrial corridor that was one of the main birthplaces of the manufacturing industry in Canada.

Whether on the landscape of the Canal, on or under its banks, a number of elements still testify to the rich industrial, energy and manufacturing past of the Lachine Canal national historic site.
