About Welland Canal

The Welland Canal is a ship trench in Ontario, Canada, associating Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. It shapes a key area of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Crossing the Niagara Peninsula from Port Weller to Port Colborne, it empowers boats to rise and slide the Niagara Escarpment and sidestep Niagara Falls. The channel conveys around 3,000 boats which convey around 40,000,000 tons of load multi year. It was a central point in the development of the city of Toronto, Ontario.

The first channel and its successors permitted products from Great Lakes ports, for example, Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago, and in addition intensely industrialized regions of the United States and Ontario, to be transported to the port of Montreal or to Quebec City, where they were generally reloaded onto maritime vessels for global transportation.

The Welland Canal overshadowed other, smaller trenches in the district, for example, the Trent-Severn Waterway and, essentially, the Erie Canal which connected the Atlantic and Lake Erie by means of New York City and Buffalo, New York by giving a shorter, more straightforward association with Lake Erie. All other roadway or railroad intersections of the Welland Canal are either mobile scaffolds of the vertical lift or bascule connect types or underground passages. The most extreme passable length of a ship in this channel is 225.5 meters 740 feet. It takes sends a normal of around eleven hours to cross the whole length of the Welland Canal.
