With 15 swing bridges and 44 locks, the Trent Severn Waterway is a National Historic Site of Canada. Originally built to carry commercial shipping, the Waterway is a major centre of tourism and recreational boating for visitors and residents of southern Ontario. The Trent is also a source of hydroelectric energy and is a crucial community water source.
The Trent Severn Waterway is a tremendous regional resource that is being underutilized. Our goal is to work with all levels of government to develop a road map that will address the short term issues affecting the TSW, as well as putting the Waterway on a stable footing to allow the region to benefit for years to come.
