Bridge #13 was an operational lift bridge during the shipping season of the Welland Canal. The construction of the steel span was completed between 1927 and 1930 by the Dominion Bridge Company and was done so on temporary pilings that were driven into the canal bed during the winter of 1929-30. Much of the steel work was completed by members of the Mohawk First Nation who have a long and noted history of being some of the finest ironworkers in North America.

If you’re a university or college student, you’re probably getting ready to head back to campus. This year, in addition to all the courses you may be taking, how about trying to master some financial lessons, too?  Of course, many students already have at least one foot in the “real world” because they’re not just taking classes — they’re also working many hours a week to help pay for school, rent and living expenses. But even if you’re a full-time student, living on campus and paying for school through a combination of grants, loans, savings and help from your parents, you can learn some financial basics that can help you throughout your adult life.

Canada now has 150 years of fascinating story, and Welland is a part of that amazing story. It’s been a successful 150 years for us Canadians. We’ve built a Country on the dedication and vision of our ancestors, and now hold a legacy built on strength and kindness. Although Canada’s landscape has changed significantly from 150 years ago in 1858 when Welland was officially incorporated as a village, and later received status as an official town twenty years later in 1878. The dedication and vision of the City of Welland continues to grow.
