Your safety when visiting

Parks Canada is preparing to receive visitors and boaters safely and will respect the standards provided by Transport Canada for Canadian boaters. 

  • Nautical distancing: 2 meters between each boat;
  • No rafting;
  • Touchless locking: boaters will have to tie their boats themselves and stay on boat while locking;
  • Cashless payment preferred;
  • Wearing a mask or face covering that covers the nose and mouth is mandatory during lockage.

It is possible that boat capacity may be considerably reduced and that the waiting time may be increased at lock station. We appreciate your patience and collaboration.

During your visit, the Public Health Agency of Canada recommends wearing non-medical masks.
