In these challenging times, the Capital Heritage Connexion is very concerned for the well-being of our Heritage and greater Capital community; and all Canadians and global citizens.
Please take great care, stay informed and follow the official advice and directives of our government and public health officials.
In these stay at home days, it’s also important we stay
connected and engaged.
For fans of Heritage and other cultural experiences, are you looking to discover virtual content; or find family friendly activities?
Visit our Ottawagraphy site to discover Capital stories, virtual exhibits, and more.
As just featured in influential Forbes magazine, discover virtual tours and exhibits offered by our national and community museums.
Check in with the Goulbourn Museum for their Family Craft Day series.
While reaching out to family members, start recording and compiling some of your oral and written history, and completing your family tree, with the help of the Ottawa Branch, Ontario Genealogical Society. And take advantage of the free online resources offered by the Ottawa Public Library.
Looking ahead to better times, start planning your next visit to a Heritage attraction or district, or looking forward to Heritage events and activities. Purchase a Haunted Walk certificate, make a donation to a community museum, or volunteer to help at a local archives or historical society.
For those working in Heritage: do you need information on how to work safely and remotely; cope personally; or adjust and communicate your new directions?
Become a Connexion member and participate in our timely upcoming workshops and webinars to help you navigate through these times.
And visit our resource page for upcoming webinars offered by others.
It’s also important that we all support each other, where we are able. Keep an eye out for your neighbours, especially seniors or those with health challenges. Donate to your local Food Bank or shelter. Order take-out or delivery from local restaurateurs and foodstuffs from local farmers. Enjoy performances being live streamed by local musicians and other artists and make a donation. Buy merchandise and gift certificates from local businesses online.
We’ll get through this, Together.
