The City of Thorold is a community of `18,000 along the Welland Canal, just south of St. Catharines. Thorold is famous for the Welland Canal's twinned Flight Locks where "ships climb the mountain" of the Niagara Escarpment. Flight locks #4, #5, #6 & #7 are truly engineering marvels.
Today, you can trace the route of the Second Welland Canal, by following the Merritt Trail along its route through the City.
The community has extensive light industrial lands along the eat bank of the Welland Canal and in the south along Canboro Rd (#20), providing lots of employment in the community.

The unique Thorold vehicle tunnel was built under the existing Welland Canal approximately 28 years ago. Maintained by the St. Lawrence Seaway, it allowed quick access across the canal without long waits at lift bridges (likewise no more waits for ships)..
