Meetings of the Historical Society of Ottawa

Regular monthly meetings are held at 1.00pm on the last Wednesday of the month (except in June, July, August, and December) in the auditorium of the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 120 Metcalfe Street.

From time to time, evening meetings will also be held at 7.00pm, typically on a Wednesday, in the auditorium of the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

Light refreshments will be provided in the lobby of the auditorium starting 30 minutes before a meeting begins (i.e. 12.30pm or 6.30pm).

At each meeting, a speaker informs and engages members and guests about a topic of local historical interest. (Click here for a list of our upcoming meetings.)

All are welcome to attend without charge.

The annual general meeting normally occurs in May and is an occasion for the board of directors to account for its conduct during the preceding year and offer an insight to its plans for the future. All members are eligible to vote for individual candidates for the board of directors.
