Annual Heritage Forum

How Heritage Works in Ottawa

The Fifth Annual Heritage Ottawa Forum

Saturday, October 15, 2016

Noon - 4:30 pm

The Event is Full and Pre-Registration is Now Closed.


Join us for this informative afternoon of presentations and practical information focusing on

How Heritage Works in Ottawa.

Hear and share stories of heritage successes and challenges while learning about the various tools available to individuals and communities who are interested in preserving their local heritage.

In partnership with Action Sandy Hill, this year's forum will be held at the former All Saints Anglican Church, a designated heritage building now known as allsaints.

Our keynote speaker will be Leanne Moussa, president and founder of All Saints Development Inc. who led the community effort to purchase and adapt the building for new community uses.

City of Ottawa heritage staff will make a presentation about the current Heritage Inventory Project, a city-wide survey and evaluation of all built structures in order to determine which contribute to the city's cultural heritage value. When complete, the project will result in an easily accessible, online map-based inventory of Ottawa's heritage resources, replacing the outdated Heritage Reference List.

Stuart Clarkson of the City of Ottawa Archives will present a talk on Researching the History of Your Ottawa Property.

An optional walking tour highlighting Prime Minister's Row, another exciting heritage initiative in Sandy Hill, precedes the Forum. The walking tour is led by François Bregha and departs at 11:00am from 317 Chapel Street.


Pre-Registration is Now Closed

Event space is limited so pre-registration is required. The registration fee is $10 per person which includes the optional walking tour, a light lunch and refreshments.
