Trent Severn WaterwayParks Canada has announced that the Trent-Severn Waterway’s 44 lock stations located between Trenton and Port Severn are now open for the 2018 navigation season. 

Last year, the Trent-Severn Waterway saw an increase in boat traffic of 30% over 2016 and they look forward to continue to welcome visitors this season. 2018 is the perfect time to experience the rich heritage and natural beauty of this Canadian National Historic Site and Parks Canada continues to improve their visitor offering by developing new and innovative programs, improved facilities and expanded services.

NEW this year! Paddlers get a 50% discount on seasonal lockage permits for canoes and kayaks. Parks Canada invites all paddlers to launch their own adventure along Canada's original highways. The lockage permit is valid for the entire navigation season and provides passage through all of Parks Canada’s historic canals.

This season, visitors to the waterway can also take advantage of two free lockage days. On June 24th free lockage will be provided as a “thank you” for a great 2017 Season and on July 1st free lockage will be provided in celebration of Canada Day.

Also new for the 2018 navigation season is the recently launched Ontario Waterways Water Management InfoNet, accessible on the Trent-Severn Waterway website home page. The portal contains background information on water management practices, water management updates, frequently asked questions about water management, various reports on water management, and the most recent water levels of lakes along the waterway.

Building upon their “Twitter Boater Information Service” that launched last year, Parks Canada will continue to provide real-time information via Twitter to their boater community. @TSWBoaterInfo will be operated by a team that will monitor conditions along the Waterway, tweeting updates along with useful visitor information to make the waterway experience an enjoyable one, make sure to follow them @TSWBoaterInfo
