Lock No 1 ChamblyEarly Bird Pricing on Seasonal Lockage Permit

This permit is valid for the entire navigation season, and provides passage for your recreational vessel through any number of Parks Canada's lock systems, at all National Historic Canals across Canada*:

Locations in Quebec:

    Carillon Canal National Historic Site

    Chambly Canal National Historic Site

    Lachine Canal National Historic Site

    Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Canal National Historic Site

    Saint-Ours Canal National Historic Site

    Rideau Canal National Historic Site

    Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

* St. Peter's Canal (Nova Scotia) and Sault Ste. Marie Canal (Ontario) National Historic Sites do not charge lockage fees for recreational vessels.

6-Day Lockage Permit

This permit shares the characteristics of the Seasonal Lockage Permit above, and is intended for folks who only require 6 days of lockage in a season. These 6 days do not need to be consecutive, making this permit an excellent value for someone with fewer days available to spend on the water.

If you plan on navigating Parks Canada's locks on more than 6 days in a season, the Seasonal Lockage Permit may be the best option for you.

Transit One-Way Lockage Permit

Transit One Way Lockage

This permit allows the boater to travel through the entire Trent-Severn Waterway or the entire Rideau Canal system on a one-way passage. Boaters looking to make a return trip or traverse both systems should opt for the Seasonal Lockage Permit.

Seasonal Overnight Mooring Permit

Parks Canada offers a seasonal mooring permit that is valid for overnight mooring at seven national historic canals, two national parks, and one national marine conservation area. Your seasonal overnight mooring permit provides overnight mooring for your recreational vessel for the entire navigable season.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
