Facility:Chambly Canal National Historic Site of Canada
Description:The Chambly Canal, which opened along the Richelieu in 1843, played a leading role in the Quebec forest products industry and in shipping these products to the burgeoning United States market. For over a century, heavily loaded barges travelled the Canal, a distance of about 20 km. The nine locks allowed the barges to bypass rapids and overcome a considerable difference in levels between the Chambly basin and the Upper Richelieu. Today, this former communications route is used by pleasure boaters and tourists. Come on board and let yourself be carried away on the Chambly Canal.
