Canadian Yachting December 2020 - 55

Big Chute Marine Railway. You just have to see it to believe it. This imaginative masterpiece hoists your boat out of one lake, carries you over a highway, and sets you gently back
down in the water on the other side. Just think about that for a second...

CONNECTING COMMUNITY
A lot has changed on the Trent in the
hundred years since it became a fully
connected navigation channel, and
today, the same communities that grew
up around the fur trade and timber
mills continue to evolve into a new era
of vibrant waterfront tourism ripe with
local food, burgeoning arts scenes, and
recreational trail networks that go on
and on. Boating has changed too. A trip
that once might have taken a couple of
weeks to complete is now doable in a
couple of well-planned days thanks to
advancements in modern equipment
and a wellspring of overnight accommodations. It's now easier than ever to
string together a couple of days here
and there, building a custom boating
excursion that ticks all the boxes.
When you are cruising the Trent,
don't be shy about docking for an
afternoon either. The growing off-boat

appeal of the Trent-Severn Waterway
is perhaps its greatest asset. More
boaters today are seeing the cruising
experience as a means to an end; a way
to access the good food and great outdoors that await you at every stop. And
now that everybody is looking closer
to home for their next travel adventure,
supporting local businesses and travelling with a purpose has never been
easier.
NAUTICAL DISTANCING
2020 changed the way all of us experience the world, and Parks Canada too,
had to adapt. Lock staff, responding to
a rapidly changing public health crisis,
were seeking ways to continue getting
Canadian boaters out on the water safely.
The solution? Nautical Distancing.
Typically known for a more hands-on
approach to their lockages, (Cnt'd on

TRENT-SEVERN WATERWAY AT
A GLANCE
* In 1920, the Trent-Severn Waterway
was officially linked from end to end
* Indigenous people have called this land
and water home well before European
settlers arrived. Many sections of the
Waterway are built along traditional paddling routes and Indigenous people continue to live along the waterway today, in
thriving communities where many cultural
traditions are still practiced.
* During the annual operating season
(May - Oct) Parks Canada operates the
Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic
Site as a navigation channel for recreational boating and paddling
* 44 individual locks connect 2 separate
watersheds between Lake Ontario and
Georgian Bay
* Throughout the year, Parks Canada
performs important duties related to
Water Management for reasons of public
safety, providing for recreational tourism,
and mitigating environmental impact.
