Parks Canada encourages the public to use caution in and around canal structures and channels. From mid-October to the end of May, the canal’s lock stations are closed and their use is at one’s own risk. Unmarked hazards may exist. Wet leaves, ice, and snow may remain on stairs and walkways and ice conditions on the waterway can vary. Over the non-navigation season, aids to navigation may be missing, off-station or inoperable until next spring.
Water levels will begin to lower across the Trent-Severn Waterway and Haliburton reservoirs after October 14 in preparation for freeze up.
Lockage and mooring permits for 2015 will soon be available for purchase online at www.parkscanada.gc.ca/sr.
