The flooding of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1958 created a deep water shipping channel and a source for renewable power generation through the Moses-Saunders Power Dam. Through the process, villages within the Upper Canada Region were completely submerged under water. The influence of this era lives on in an interlinked mix of attractions. The story of the displaced families and relocated buildings has inspired the narrative at many local historical sites and the new shoreline provides an ideal setting for swimming,
boating, fishing and scuba diving.
The Municipality of South Dundas and the Township of South Stormont together form the Upper Canada Region. For more information on attractions, accomodations and restaurants, please see each Municipality’s website:
