Saturday, October 15, 2016 - 12:00 to 16:30

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 challenges and successes while learning about the various tools available to individuals and communities interested in protecting 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 repurpose the building for community use.

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will result in an easily accessible, online map-based inventory of Ottawa's heritage resources that replaces the outdated Heritage Reference List.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

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