2017 FREE Lockage for Canada's 150

2017 is a special year for Canada - we are celebrating our 150th year since Confederation. 

There are two major offerings available for 2017 only - FREE passage through all locks, and FREE access to all Parks Canada locations (see the list here). You must order your free pass beforehand. We'd recommend ordering your pass now as the processing time and cross-border mailing tends to be slow.

To order your FREE lockage permit, click here.

To order your lockage permit, you must provide your vessel length and your vessel registration ID.

Poplars is a reasonable day trip away from Ottawa, where many special events are happening. If you'd like more information, visit Ottawa's special Canada 150 page here.
