Niagara is gearing up for the opening of the Welland Canal.

Spring is on its way and the 2019 navigation season for the St. Lawrence Seaway kicks off on March 22nd.

Top hat ceremonies will be held in St. Catharines and Port Colborne to start the 190th shipping season for the Welland Canal.

The ceremonies are hosted by the mayors in each community and honour our Region's marine heritage.

The events happen at the Welland Canals Centre in St. Catharines and at Gateway Park at Lock 8 in Port Colborne.
