Ottawa 150

Celebrate Ottawa’s 150th Birthday with Us

 

   The origins of a community are important. It’s an opportunity for the younger generation to listen to their elders share heartfelt moments of their own experiences, victories and struggles when they were young.
It’s also an opportunity to correct many of the misrepresentations, misunderstandings and fallacies of a newborn Ottawa and to celebrate the characters’ and character of the brave men and women who formed the foundation on which our city was built.

As we embark on this year long celebration of Ottawa’s Sesquicentennial we encourage you to join in, share your own stories, learn something new, celebrate the good things and share our vision for our community.

We have many organizations and groups who have committed to a jam-packed year of celebration. If you or your group would like to participate just click on the “Get involved” button on this website.

However you choose to participate we know you’ll be delighted and amazed by the Sesqui-Sensational celebration we have planned to mark our 150th birthday.
