Canal is Closed for skating.
Status detail: Closed for the Season
The National Capital Commission regrets to advise the public that the Rideau Canal Skateway is officially closed for the season.
The heavy wet snow of the past 24 hours has weakened the ice and with the continuing mild weather forecast it is unrealistic to expect the ice to rebuild
to safe conditions and to resume the skating season.
Please note that the ice is thinning. The ice surface of the Skateway can be unpredictable and many hazards cannot be seen by untrained eyes. The NCC urges the public to keep personal safety in mind and remain off the Skateway as it is now closed. Please respect the red flags, the barricades and the signs installed at access points. NCC staff and contractors will work over the next few days to dismantle the equipment and infrastructure necessary for the operations of the Skateway.
Status is from: Thu, Feb 28, 3:30pm.
