Heritage Day 2020

Snow, cold, rain or shine, the annual Heritage Day celebration will take place on Tuesday 18 February at Ottawa City Hall, 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. The theme this year is “2020 Vision:  Bringing the Past Into the Future”

BIFHSGO and Ottawa Branch OGS will be among about 40 heritage groups taking part.

The event is organized by the Capital Heritage Connexion, formerly CHOO/COPO, which empowers Ottawa’s heritage sector with expertise, tools and resources; connects its heritage networks and represents it to the broader community.

Heritage Day is part of Heritage Week, a nation-wide celebration that encourages all Canadians to explore their local heritage, to get involved with stewardship and advocacy groups, and to visit museums, archives, and places of significance.  Heritage Day is a time to reflect on the achievements of past generations and to accept responsibility for protecting our heritage.
