Ottawa, Ontario – Fairmont Château Laurier

Be part of the conversation during three days of engaging speakers, workshops, tours and special events. Join us in Ottawa to build your skills, be inspired, and connect with like-minded advocates from across the country.


  • Big idea thinkers like Graham Fairclough (Newcastle, UK) at the forefront of new landscape-informed and inclusive ways of ‘doing’ heritage; Jean Carroon, leader of Goody Clancy’s extensive sustainable preservation practice in Boston; and Chris Henderson of Lumos Energy and author of the game-changing Aboriginal Power. 
  • Discussion starters like Intensification—Getting It Right; Development Projects—Making the Numbers Work; Heritage, Sustainability & Resilience—Responding to Disasters. 
  • Spark sessions: Do or Die in seven minutes on topics ranging from heritage and: diversity, social justice, insurance, urban tourism, the new suburbia, and yes, even tax systems!
  • Incisive workshops from heritage eco-districts to fundraising strategies.
  • A unique opportunity to exchange ideas on capitalizing on the value of existing buildings at an interdisciplinary gathering of professionals and students from the fields of Architecture, Art History, Canadian Studies and Engineering.
  • Explore beyond the capital on a bus tour and visit to historic Perth, home of Algonquin College’s renowned Heritage Masonry and Carpentry programs. Known for its abundance of heritage architecture and its ground-breaking Main Street revitalization story, this gem of a place should not be missed.

Get behind the scenes of official Ottawa with a spectacular opening reception at the Delegation of the Ismaili Imamat, tours of the West Block rehabilitation on Parliament Hill, and glimpses inside the city’s Mid-Century Modern gems.

Capitalize on a Capital Event! But don’t delay. Things are filling up, and our special Château Laurier room rate is ending soon!
