Trent Severn Waterway Opens For 2024 Navigation Season

KAWARTHA LAKES-The 104th season of the Trent Severn Waterway is now open!

Parks Canada offers 450,000 km2 of stories, and the Trent-Severn Waterway has experiences for everyone. The Trent-Severn Waterway’s lockstations between Trenton and Port Severn connect people with incredible beauty, natural heritage, and modern Canadian memories at our National Historic Sites.

The popular Lock & Paddle event will return to Peterborough with a special twist. After a record number of participants in 2023, we invite you to celebrate this year’s event with family, friends and fellow paddlers in a “triple crown” of paddling fun. Join Parks Canada on Canada Parks Day (July 20th) in three Canadian cities on three historic canals – all simultaneously! Peterborough, Ottawa and Montreal will all play host for this free, one-of-a-kind canoe and kayak community encounter. What is Lock & Paddle? Learn more about this signature event here!

This summer you can extend your stay on the waterway with a one-of-a-kind overnight stay at an oTENTik, Ôasis or reservable camping site. To book one of these unique and popular experiences, visit www.reservations.pc.gc.ca

“The safety of our visitors and staff continues to be of the utmost importance to Parks Canada. Boaters, paddlers, and swimmers are reminded that certain reaches continue to have higher-than-average flows and are asked to exercise caution. Floating debris may be present, and navigation aids may be off-station as we continue to monitor the navigation channels. Boaters are also advised to watch their wake and wash near shorelines to avoid damage to docks, boats and property.” said a press release from Parks Canada
