Projected as a result of the War of 1812. A commission
was appointed in 1816 to report on a canal between Lakes Erie and
Ontario. The matter dragged along for several years, until at last,
through the energy and enthusiasm of William Hamilton Merritt, a company
was incorporated, and work actually commenced, in 1824. Five years
later, the first vessels passed through from Ontario to Erie. In 1841
work was commenced on the enlargement of the canal, and completed in
1850. Between 1873 and 1883, the canal was deepened to 12 feet; and in
1887 to 14 feet. In the meantime, the work had been taken over by the
government, and become part of the system of Dominion canals. =Index=:
