Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site Of Canada

Year after year, the Trent-Severn Waterway, meandering 386 km along central Ontario, continues to create unique experiences. After each spring thaw, the Waterway’s historic locks and canals open, linking a passageway so magnificent it has been named “one of the finest interconnected systems of navigation in the world”. Those who visit, reminisce long after leaving. They can’t help but remember the impressive locks and lofty legends that make up one of Canada’s most spectacular waterways.

    Hi Tim,
    I am seeking permission to use your photo of skaters in front of the Peterborough Liftlock. The Peterborough Community Church Hockey League is hosting a Tournament called “Under The Lock”. Rona Peterborough has donated all the building materials for the boards around the rink and if possible, would like to use your still photo to represent hockey in front of the Liftlocks for a youtube video. I have attempted to make a donation, but was unable to. Please let me know how I would go about doing so.
    Thank you.
