Discovery of the Soulanges Canal

My Session Status

1:30 PM, Saturday 28 May 2022 (4 hours 30 minutes)
UQAM, pavillon J.-A. De Sève (DS) - DS Registration table (meeting point)

Bus tour of the Soulanges Canal and its facilities (1899-1959), currently undergoing a major enhancement project. The first stop will be at the west entrance of the canal, the Coteau-Landing (Les Coteaux) entrance lock; from there, we will go to lock no. 4 and to the old Cedars hydroelectric power station (called "Petit Pouvoir"), classified as a historic monument since 1984 by the Quebec government, then to Pointe-des-Cascades where the spectacular locks no. 1, 2 and 3 are located. The visit will conclude at the site of the Canal workshops, with a friendly drink. The return trip is scheduled just in time for the closing dinner of the conference; the bus will drop participants off at the Parc Jean-Drapeau metro station (where the dinner is being held, in former Expo 67 US pavilion, that is one stop from Berri-UQAM station, venue of the conference).
