Harper Government freezes recreational lockage fees for three years
Parks Canada to work with stakeholders to identify long term sustainability solutions for the historic canals
OTTAWA, May 14, 2013 /CNW/ – The Honourable Peter Kent, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, today announced that recreational lockage fees along Canada’s historic canals will remain frozen for the next three years at 2008 levels.
“Since the beginning of our consultation process on canal fees, we have been committed to listening and acting in the best interests of the residents who live, work and visit our canals,” said Minister Kent. “We recognize the importance of canals to Canada’s heritage, the tourism industry and the thousands of people who use them each year. That is why following consultations with Government Members of Caucus who live along the canals, I am pleased to announce that Parks Canada will freeze lockage fees for three years.”
“During this time, Parks Canada and I will work with local Members of Parliament, community leaders and the tourism industry to develop and implement an improved operating model to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the canals operations. These long term solutions will need to address all aspects of the canals operations.”
As part of the long-term financial sustainability of the canals operations, Parks Canada is already considering new visitor opportunities that will benefit a broad range of canals users, and create new sources of revenue, all while maintaining support for our tourism operators and industry.

Some of the smaller, but no less important tributaries of the Kawartha Lakes are the Nogies Creek, Mississagua River, Eels Creek and Jack Creek watersheds.
The Nogies Creek watershed contains only one reservoir operated by the Trent-Severn Waterway, that of Crystal Lake. At the headwaters of the Nogies Creek watershed, Crystal Lake is fed by several small tributaries which help to fill the lake during dry springs. Downstream of Crystal Lake, Nogies Creek (formally known as Harvey Brook) flows through both Bass Lake and Big March Lake before entering Pigeon Lake at its north end.
The Mississagua River watershed is a significant tributary of the Kawatha Lakes and lies between the Nogies Creek watershed to the west and the Eels Creek watershed to the east. With Anstruther Lake flowing into it, Mississauga Lake contributes a substantial volume of water to the Kawartha Lakes. Nearly 15% of the water retained in the reservoirs comes from Anstruther Lake and Mississaugua Lake.
The Eels Creek and Jack Creek watersheds have very similar characteristics. With each having a single reservoir within their headwaters, the watercourses behave very much the same throughout the year. The primary difference between the two is the size of Eels Creek compared to Jack Creek. The Eels Creek watershed has both a large reservoir in its head water and a large catchment area which contributes to its surface water runoff. For those reasons the Eels Creek watershed will generally generate higher flows.
