Other Trent-Severn Centennial+1 Celebrations
2020 marked the 100-year anniversary of the completion of the Trent-Severn Waterway. Unfortunately, COVID-19 disrupted Parks Canada’s plans to celebrate the milestone with a series of live events and gatherings. In 2021, Parks Canada is commemorating the centennial with a series of virtual events and activities designed to connect visitors with the special history of the Waterway in exciting new ways. Visit the Trent-Severn 101 website to learn more about the Google Earth Project, Live at the Locks video series on Facebook, and the Cross-Canada Virtual Road Trip to the Peterborough Lift Lock.
Explore. Experience. Enjoy.
