Parks Canada is proud of the unique boating experiences that Ontario has to offer. These promotional efforts are intended to encourage new and continued use of our beautiful waterways. Our valued partners in boating are invited to participate in these efforts by communicating them at every occasion to further expose Canadians and visitors to the many opportunities available on the Historic Canals and in all of Ontario.
