The Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site is one of 167 national historic sites operated by Parks Canada to protect and present significant examples of our nation’s heritage. Completed in 1895, the Sault Ste. Marie Canal was the longest lock in the world and the first to be electrically operated. The construction of the Sault Ste. Marie Canal marked the completion of an all-Canadian navigation system from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Superior.
