- A river of southeast Canada flowing about 1,207 km (750 mi) northeast from Lake Ontario along the Ontario-New York border and through southern Quebec to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The river was first sighted by Jacques Cartier in 1534; in 1535 he ascended it as far as the site of the modern-day city of Montreal. Long a water highway for explorers, missionaries, and fur traders, it is today a major shipping route.
