Looking down the Rideau Canal locks toward the Ottawa River and the Royal Alexandra Interprovincial Bridge that leads to Gatineau, Quebec.

The 8 locks connect the channel of the Rideau Canal in Ottawa to the Ottawa River, almost 24.4 m below. Registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007, the Rideau Canal is the oldest continuously operated canal system in North America.
