Canal Conversation- Canadian Canals

May 17, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


The Erie Canal and the rest of the New York State Canal System have for nearly 200 years been part of a larger borderland network of canals connecting to the Great Lakes. This roundtable, featuring Grant Vogl of the Bytown Museum, Derrick Pratt of the Erie Canal Museum, and Adrian Petry of the St. Catharines Museum and Welland Canals Centre, will examine their respective canals, the Rideau, Erie/Oswego, and Welland, looking at their similarities and differences while having an engaging exchange on North American canals.

This talk will be presented via Zoom. Attendance is FREE with a recommended $10 donation.

Presented with support from:
