The Welland Canal
is a ship canal in Ontario, Canada, connecting Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. It forms a key section of the St. Lawrence Seaway and Great Lakes Waterway. Traversing the Niagara Peninsula from Port Weller to Port Colborne, it enables ships to ascend and descend the Niagara Escarpment and bypass Niagara Falls.
Many people with ancestors of the Old Counties of Lincoln/Welland can connect to their ancestral ties which date back to the development and building of the Welland Canal System.
