Infrastructure program

Lachine Canal National Historic Site

What to know before you visit

Parks Canada invested an unprecedented $3 billion dollars over since 2015 to support infrastructure work to heritage, visitor, waterway and highway assets located within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada.

This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors.

Major work were carried out on walls, locks, bridges, tunnels, footbridges, weirs, as well as on heritage buildings and visitor facilities (service areas, paths and accesses, etc.) of various canals.

Throughout these projects, Parks Canada worked with its partners to ensure that Quebec's historic canals reach their full potential as lively and vibrant places.
