Pleasure Craft Tolls
Payment of Pleasure Craft Tolls
- Cash is not accepted as payment for tolls at Canadian locks
- Users wishing to transit Saint- Lambert, Côte Sainte-Catherine, Beauharnois or Iroquois locks in the Montreal-Lake Ontario Section or the Welland Canal must use the new on-line pleasure craft lockage reservation system. (Please see instructions on the Lockage Schedule page.).
The tolls apply only to pleasure craft up to 300 gross registered tonnes. Larger craft are subject to the regular tolls payable under the Seaway Schedule of Tolls which is included in the Seaway Handbook, together with the Seaway Practices and Procedures. The Handbook is available here on our website.

At the American locks in the Montreal/Lake Ontario section, tolls for upbound craft will be collected by the officer in charge at the Bertrand H. Snell lock. Tolls for downbound craft will be collected by the officer in charge at the Dwight D. Eisenhower lock. Every effort should be made to have the exact toll (cash) available. No premium will be allowed for currency exchange rates.
American locks do not accept credit cards nor sell tickets at the locks; however, tickets can be purchased in advance at the www.pay.gov website (via the link below).
