The earliest canal in Canada and in North America was that at
Lachine, which dates back to the beginning of the eighteenth century.
Between 1779 and 1783, lock canals were built by the Royal Engineers, at
the Coteau and the Cascades, on the St. Lawrence. In 1798 a boat canal
was built at Sault Ste. Marie by the North West Company. A canal to
connect the St. Lawrence and Lake Champlain was advocated as early as
1775, by Silas Deane of Connecticut, but was not actually undertaken
until 1831. The Welland Canal was commenced in 1824; and the Rideau
Canal two years later. These artificial waterways of Canada are
controlled by the Department of Railways and Canals, of the Dominion
government. =Index=: (General Brock era) First in American continent made in Canada,
