Managing the Rideau Canal

The Rideau Canal National Historic Site is managed and operated by Parks Canada. Their mandate is to preserve, protect and present this area of national significance on behalf of the people who live, work and play here. All three levels of government (federal, provincial and municipal) as well as dedicated volunteers and special interest groups, play important roles in managing the Canal by protecting its heritage character while investing in the future of its culture and community.
