Parks CanadaThe Trent-Severn Waterway 2017 Navigation Season will open in stages starting on Friday, May 26th.

Increased precipitation over the past weekend coupled with forecasted rainfall has created the requirement for additional time to reduce water levels and flows to a point that ensures safe boating conditions across the system.


Please see the table below for the most recent description of stations that will be open for navigation as of Saturday, May 27th, 2017.

This list will be updated and released on a daily basis until all stations are fully open. All other lock stations will be open to land-based visitation but closed to boat traffic.

This staged opening of the Waterway will most importantly protect boater safety, and help to prevent further shoreline erosion and property damage experienced by local residents and businesses.


Parks Canada will continue to work diligently to open the entire system for navigation and will open individual lock stations in stages as soon as it safe to do so. Updates will be provided regularly and communicated widely.


All visitors are encouraged to always exercise caution around water but especially now with water flows less predictable and stable than during regular navigation season.
