Heritage Canal fees frozen

Just before a review panel was to review fees for canals such as the Rideau Canal and Trent-Severn Waterway, the federal government has decided to freeze the canal fees for another 3 years and study the governance of all the heritage canals. The canals open for the season on Friday.

The proposed mooring fees will be implemented after all approval processes are complete, sometime in 2013. Current fees will remain in effect until that time. In the meantime, seasonal lockage and seasonal mooring passes for 2013 continue to remain available for purchase at the current fee. All seasonal passes will be honoured throughout the 2013 season at the original purchase price.
