Rideau's favorite channel Skateway opened for business Sunday morning at 8 am.

The NCC announced that it would have access to a 2.7-kilometer stretch of famous landmarks between Bank Street and Pretoria, including Patterson Creek.

The weather looks quite favorable for ice skating, opening with a mixture of sun and clouds, which becomes more cloudy in the afternoon after 60% chance of rainstorms.

The NCC said in a press release on Sunday that the skateboard team will continue to open other areas of the world's largest rink as soon as the ice conditions become safe and the weather allows.

In the meantime, they are asking the public not to decide on closed areas.

Due to the reconstruction of the canal walls, the entire Concord Recreation Area, including the dressing room and latrine, concessions, entry and access to the ice surface, will not be available during the skating season 2018–2019.

In November 2018, Skateway Rideau Canal was mentioned among 18 unique adventures in Reader's Digestand as one of North America’s most spectacular winter destinations according to Lonely planet,
