Overview

The Lachine Canal was one of the most important waterways in Canadian history. Its construction, between 1825 and 1873, allowed expanded navigation into the St Lawrence River and facilitated Montreal's continued expansion. Nowadays the main attraction is the delightful cycle, walking and inline skating path leading from Lachine right into the Downtown area. An interpretive center offers a permanent exhibit outlining the phases of the canal's construction and history.
