Canal Valley Master Plan

St. Catharines' Downtown Lower Level Valley is undergoing a significant transformation. By the fall of 2015, three major new facilities will have been constructed and operating in the valley, including the Meridian Centre, the new Performing Arts Centre and Brock University's Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. These transformative projects will reawaken the former canal valley and help spur additional investment and renewed vibrancy.

The Canal Valley Master Plan will address the spaces and relationships between these three facilities to ensure they are well knit into the fabric of the downtown and with each other. The balance of the valley lands must also help to set the stage for continued reinvestment in the buildings that line its upper edge through improved access, exposure and quality surroundings.

The completed Master Plan will describe a number of recommended actions to help achieve these outcomes.


The proposed Master Plan will be considered by City Council at their meeting on January 26, 2015.
