Chambly Canal National Historic Site of Canada is located on the west bank of the Richelieu River, south-east of Montréal, Quebec. Twenty kilometres long, the Chambly Canal is a section of a waterway constructed in the 19th century between Chambly and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu on Québec’s Richelieu River. The canal constitutes part of an inland water transportation route joining Montréal and New York City. The site includes the waterway itself, nine locks, five weirs, two piers, dams, dikes and bridges, and several other elements and buildings associated with the operation of the canal. A small paradise for cyclists, boaters and hikers, the site offers pure relaxation in an environment carved out by more than a century of history.

Le lieu historique national du Canada du Canal-de-Chambly est situé sur la rive ouest de la rivière Richelieu, au sud-est de Montréal, au Québec. Long de vingt kilomètres, le canal de Chambly est un tronçon de voie navigable aménagé entre Chambly et Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, qui faisait partie de la voie de transport fluvial intérieur reliant Montréal et New York au XIXe siècle. Le lieu comprend la voie d’eau proprement dite, neuf écluses, cinq déversoirs, deux jetées, des barrages, des digues et des ponts, ainsi que plusieurs autres éléments et bâtiments associés à l’opération du canal. Paradis des cyclistes, des plaisanciers et des randonneurs, le site offre une détente dans un environnement sculpté par plus d’un siècle d’histoire.
