Rideau Canal boating season arrives
The shoulder season on the Rideau Canal season begins today. Parks Canada says that the Rideau Canal 2019 Navigation Season will begin as scheduled this morning (May 17th.)
From now until June 23 the hours at lockstations will be open from 10am through 4pm from Monday to Thursday, and 9am until 7pm Friday to Sunday and Victoria Day.
Extended hours run from June 24th through September 2nd.
Parks Canada also says visitors are encouraged to always exercise caution around water.
This is especially important during any periods of high water and fast flows, like we’re seeing along parts of the corridor.
