The St. Lawrence River forms part of the boundary between Canada and the United States and connects the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean. Historically, the river served as a vital waterway for the region's Native nations, European explorers, fur traders, and settlers. Today, about one-fourth of Canada's population lives along the scenic St. Lawrence River, and a sophisticated system of canals, dams, and locks lets seagoing ships travel all the way to Lake Superior.
