Lecture | 6.30 – 7.30pm

Ottawa: Capital of Two Nations

Poised on the border of English Ontario and French Quebec, Ottawa is a bridge between the founding European cultures as much a celebration of the older civilisations and newer arrivals that enliven this beautiful city. Ottawa like the Canadian confederacy is both a symbol of a Canadian genius for compromise and a unique national identity that now readily acknowledges many founding nations of indigenous Canadians as well as migrant communities. Ottawa – a fascinating city!
