Join us on Tuesday, February 21st at 12:00 pm for a Heritage Day celebration back at Ottawa City Hall!
Celebrate Heritage Day with the theme Recovering and Connecting Ottawa’s Heritage – Stronger Together.
Recognizing the unique and unprecedented events of the past few years; the COVID 19 pandemic exacerbated division and distance, pushing our communities further apart. However, it was our heritage and cultural organizations that kept us connected and strong, by persevering and showcasing the value of heritage to forge a way forward together.
Our heritage communities were flexible in providing opportunities for connection suited to the comfort needs of each individual. From online lectures, to in-person walking tours and the new hybrid experiences that made heritage accessible to all, Ottawa’s heritage community came together to give Ottawa a healing platform and space to recover.
The Heritage Showcase
Come explore the many heritage organizations and groups that make Ottawa’s heritage community like no other! Local historical societies, museums and other associate groups will be set up in Jean Pigott Hall before and after the Heritage Day ceremony at 12PM for you to ask questions and plan your next visit!
