The tradition of the 'old canal' - bringing people together - continues to grow as we work with you and the City of Welland to build a bright future. With over 1,000 acres, 24km of trails and 12km of waterway this incredible national asset is a place where residents and visitors can participate in a wide variety of arts, culture, sports, leisure and recreation activities, and experience a unique natural and recreational environment within an urban area. 

Over thirty years of planning and envisioning have gone into the development of The Waterways Master Plan - a plan whose reach enhances the local economy with local, provincial, national and global events and programs - over $48 million are expected from events over the next three years.

We hope you are enjoying the Waterway and all that the City of Welland and the Canal Corporation have to offer. We invite you to share your photos, stories, suggestions and comments with us ... and check back often as we provide fresh news, stories and information. For quick up-dates, 'Like' us on Facebook!
