Our popular Heritage Ottawa Free Lecture Series runs from September to June every year, and features a wide range of interesting speakers and topics pertaining to Ottawa's history and heritage.
Each February, we present the Phillips Memorial Lecture in honour of Heritage Ottawa’s co-founders, Bob and Mary Anne Phillips, two pioneers of heritage conservation in Ottawa.
Unless otherwise noted, lectures are free and are held at the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, located at 120 Metcalfe Street at the corner of Laurier Avenue. Elevators are available and the room is wheelchair accessible.
Lectures begin at 7:00pm, last approximately one hour and are followed by an informal gathering.
There is no need to pre-register. We look forward to welcoming you at our next Heritage Ottawa event!
With the assistance of the Ottawa Public Library, a selection of reading lists has been developed to accompany a number of our lectures. CLICK HERE to access the lists.
Our Lecture Series resumes in fall 2019. Check this page in September for our next Lecture Series schedule.
