doorsopenottawa

The City of Ottawa is proud to present Doors Open Ottawa, a free annual architectural event that celebrates our community’s built.

On June 2 and 3, discover the secrets and stories of over 140 unique buildings that have shaped the Ottawa landscape, such as the Supreme Court of Canada, Hydro Ottawa’s new Hydroelectric facility at Chaudière Falls, the Global Centre for Pluralism, and the Bank of Canada.

There will be a free Doors Open Ottawa Shuttle Bus, operating within walking distance of over 50 participating buildings. With so many choices, visitors can explore numerous buildings per day on foot within the downtown core.

For disability-related accommodation required to participate fully in this event, please email doorsopen@ottawa.ca or call 3-1-1.

 

Earlier this week, I had the great pleasure of joining the official launch for this year’s events.
