Welcome to the Historic Murray Canal District

Historic Murray Canal District Logo

The Historic Murray Canal District (HMCD) is a non-profit group focused on improving quality of life in the area of the Murray Canal and thereby in the three municipalities that intersect in the Murray Canal District. Our key initiatives:

  • 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. Our first heritage celebration marked the 125th Anniversary of the Canal’s opening.
  • Advocating for funding for a 2 Lane Replacement Brighton Swing Bridge.  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
  • Working as a trusted partner of Parks Canada, Federal, Provincial, County & 3 Municipal Governments.
