In accordance with Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 guidelines, Heritage Ottawa has postponed our remaining lectures for the 2019-2020 season. We will announce rescheduled dates when possible.
To help stay engaged during these challenging times, we have put together a selection of virtual tours and excellent lectures and films you can enjoy while staying at home. Click the links to see the options.
Heritage Ottawa's popular Free Lecture Series runs from September to June every year, and features a wide range of interesting speakers and topics relating 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. Lectures begin at 7 pm, last approximately one hour and are followed by an informal gathering. Elevators are available and the room is wheelchair accessible.
There is no need to pre-register. We look forward to welcoming you at our next Heritage Ottawa event!
