The Lachine Canal is a canal that crosses the southwestern part of the island of Montreal. It is located between the Old Port of Montreal and Lake Saint-Louis. It has been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1996. The canal was created in 1689 in order to allow ships to bypass the Lachine Rapids. A bicycle and pedestrian pathway is now fitted along the canal, near old industrial buildings that contributed to the development of Montreal.
