Welcome to the Historic Murray Canal District

Historic Murray Canal District Logo

Historic Murray Canal District is public advocacy group focused on improving quality of life in the area of the Murray Canal. Our goal is to improve quality of life in the area and thereby in the three municipalities that intersect in the Murray Canal District. Our key initiatives to achieve our goals include:

  • Holding fun heritage celebrations to re-connect residents and visitors to the District’s nationally significant heritage.  Through these efforts we hope to elevate the heritage status of the Parks Canada Murray Canal to help ensure a fair share of existing funding from the Federal Government.
  • Advocating for funding for a 2 Lane Replacement Brighton Swing Bridge.
  • Working as a trusted partner of Parks Canada, Federal, Provincial, County & 3 Municipal Governments.
