In response to the Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 guidelines, Heritage Ottawa has postponed the remaining 2019-2020 season lectures. We will be announcing rescheduled dates soon.
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. Elevators are available and the room is wheelchair accessible. Lectures begin at 7 pm, 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!
Thank you to our Lecture Series sponsors:
Andrex Holdings and the Ottawa Public Library.
