The Rideau Canal was constructed between 1826 and 1832, under the supervision of Lieutenant Colonel John By of the Royal Engineers. The canal provided a secure, defensible supply route from Montreal to Kingston, an alternative to the St. Lawrence River in the uneasy years following the War of 1812. The Rideau Canal is a World Heritage site.

The Ottawa Locks are the largest single set of locks on the entire Rideau Canal system, providing a lift of 24 m (79 ft.).


When the canal was opened in May, 1832, there were 47 masonry locks that provided navigation from Kingston to Ottawa a distance of 202 kilomtres (125 miles). The locks operate today as they did back in 1832 using only water and human power.
