Ottawa is the capital city of Canada, with a city population of 934,243 and a metropolitan population of 1,323,783. Rich in history, culture, architecture and diversity, Ottawa is situated on the south bank of the Ottawa River in the eastern portion of the province of Ontario. Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec and is the fourth-largest city in Canada. During your short visit to Ottawa, take advantage of some of what this pedestrian-friendly city has to offer – from national museums, to architectural landmarks, shopping and dining – Ottawa has something for everyone to explore and enjoy, all within a 20-minute stroll of the Conference venue. Here are a few must-sees as recommended by Tourism Ottawa:
Visit Canada’s Parliament Buildings! Just a short walk from the Delta Hotel, the Parliament Buildings are home to Canada’s federal government. Located on a scenic promontory overlooking the Ottawa River, the neo-Gothic and Gothic structures were built between 1859 and 1927.
The impressive Centre Block of the Parliament Buildings is home to the 92.2-metre (302-foot) Peace Tower, an intricately carved stone bell tower that keeps time for the city’s downtown core with the help of 53 bells. Take an elevator to the Peace Tower’s observation deck to enjoy a dramatic 360-degree view of the city.
Guided Tours include a visit to the Victorian-style Library of Parliament, as well as the House of Commons and the Senate, where Canada’s laws are debated and made. Guided tours of Centre Block are offered daily and admission is free.
Built between 1826 and 1832, the Rideau Canal is Ontario’s only UNESCO World Heritage Site and is must-see for any Ottawa visitor! Explore the canal by strolling or cycling along its scenic banks, throughout the downtown.
As Canada’s Capital, Ottawa is home to several award-winning national museums that house some of the country’s most priceless treasures.
From the world’s largest indoor collection of totem poles, to beautiful Indigenous and Canadian art, to ancient dinosaurs, to heroic stories and artifacts from Canada’s military past, you are sure to find something that will pique your interest. Most are located within a 20-minute walk of the Conference hotel.
The ByWard Market is one of the oldest and largest farmers’ markets in Canada, but it is also the name of the eclectic neighbourhood that surrounds it. Explore the ByWard Market, which is home to fresh food and maple syrup retailers, as well as great restaurants, clubs, bistros, coffee shops and various unique boutiques. More than 170 outdoor stalls sell plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables as well as arts and crafts year-round. And a visit to the ByWard Market area would not be complete without a stop at the BeaverTails stand, located on George Street. Ottawa is where the delicious, doughy, golden BeaverTails pastry was born in 1978! Choose from flavours such as Cinnamon and Sugar or Choco Banana – a Canadian tradition not to be missed!
