Rideau Canal Season Opening Delayed By One Week

As we approach the kick off weekend to the summer season many people are looking forward to heading to the campground or the cottage. However, boating on the Rideau Canal will not be an option. High water levels and flows caused by extreme amounts of precipitation have resulted in unsafe boating conditions across the Rideau Canal system, so Parks Canada has delayed the start of the 2017 navigation season by one week to Friday, May 26th.  This means the Rideau Canal is closed to all boat traffic and all forms of water-based activities are discouraged. This closure most importantly protects boater safety, and will help to prevent further shoreline erosion and property damage experienced by local residents and businesses.
