Participating in #HISTORICPLACESDAYS

The Sault Ste. Marie Canal, built in 1895, was the world’s longest lock, the first to operate using electricity and the last link in an all-Canadian navigational chain from the Atlantic to Lake Superior. Today the Canal, used by recreational craft, is a great spot for boat-watching and picnics – but you can do more than watch! Let a Parks Canada interpreter/guide introduce you to the Canal’s fascinating history.
