Canal de Soulanges
While rolling on the cycle path that follows it, you will see the locks that enabled the ships to go from downriver to upriver. Or vice-versa. Don't miss the "Petit pouvoir", a former hydroelectric plant built in bricks and located between the canal and the St. Lawrence River.

At the east end of the canal, you will be close to the Théâtre des Cascades. It is located in what is, according to many, the more beautiful summer theatre site in province of Québec. At the other end, take advantage of your presence to visit the Coteau-du-Lac National Historic Site. There, you will be able to see, among others, some remnants of a fort.

Built between 1892 and 1899, this canal links Les Coteau to Pointe-des-Cascades. Until 1959, it allowed ships to overcome the Saint-Lawrence River rapids. It becames obsolete due to the opening of the St. Lawrence seaway. Boats do not navigate on it anymore, but cyclists enjoy its flat banks!

Lieu historique national de Coteau-du-Lac
Located nearby canal de Soulange, this historic site features Canada’s first lock canal and the remains of a fort. You can also see a blockhouse, military building erected in 1813, as the fort, to protect Canada (then a British colony) from possible US attacks. The channel, abandoned since the inauguration of the first Beauharnois Canal, can now be visited, both feet dry!

Construction of the Coteau-du-Lac canal began in the summer of 1779. Built by soldiers using rudimentary tools and techniques, this channel (100 m long and 2.5 m wide) was completed in 1781. It includes 3 locks, each 12 m long, 1.8 m wide and a draught of about 80 cm. It allows to bypass a drop of about 2 m between downstream and upstream of the rapid.

To ride along the Lachine Channel is to rub Montreal, a vibrant metropolis with a diverse cultural life. Linking its Old Port to Lake Saint-Louis, the venerable channel (it has over 150 years!) is fun to explore by bike. Besides, in 2009, the canal's bike path was ranked third of the most beautiful urban circuits in the world by Time magazine.

Along it, you can, among others, do a picnic and rent a canoe, a kayak or, even, an electric boat. Nearby, you will also find the Atwater market, a place to discover for any food lover!

Built to bypass the impressive Lachine rapids, this canal immerses visitors in the past. It is, indeed, the craddle of canadian industrilization. The presence of this watereway combined to the hydraulic power contributed, in 19th century, to the establishment of several industries on its banks: mills and grain elevators, nail factories, edge-tool, sawmills and wood workshops.

Truly, a trip to Montreal would not be complete without a visit to this channel!

In front of this park, on the south shore of the canal: the Marina and the sail club. In summer, a resort atmosphere prevails. Pleasure crafts are now the only occupants of this former trade route.

The canal construction began in 1842. It needed a lot of energy, from the workers workers who dug, with little machinery, that 880 meters long and 40-50 meters wide trench. A bit as a side effect, those major works gave birth to the city of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield. After these, on April 23 of 1845, the canal was opened to shipping.
