Parks Canada advises that Colonel By Island, located on Big Rideau Lake on the Rideau Canal, will be without power from Sept. 5 to Sept. 8 to allow for new submarine cable installation on the site.

This means that there will be no access to the washroom facilities on this site during these days. Visitors
are encouraged to plan their trip accordingly.
