Mayor Jim Watson will recognize the importance of this theme and a proclamation recipient who reflects it as he proclaims Heritage Day in Ottawa.

Heritage Day is part of Heritage Week, a nation-wide celebration that encourages all Canadians to explore their local heritage, to get involved with stewardship and advocacy groups, and to visit museums, archives, and places of significance.

Heritage Day is a chance to recognize the contributions of the many dedicated staff and volunteers promoting heritage conservation and educating the public about our city’s history.
