What is the significance of the Rideau Canal?

    The Rideau Canal, located in Ottawa, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a symbol of Canada’s engineering heritage. Built in the 19th century for military purposes, it is now a recreational waterway and a scenic attraction. In winter, the canal transforms into the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink.
