The Capital was being transformed in 1967 — railways relocated, parkways constructed, new buildings erected, old buildings demolished (or, in some cases, protected) — all in the name of forging a strong Canadian identity. In the context of dramatic urban renewal across Canada and the western world, a conservation movement was also emerging.  Our speakers will explore what was going on in the Capital, in Canada and internationally in the 1960s, the lessons and legacy of that period, and what it means for heritage conservation in 2017.

Speakers: Susan Macdonald (Head, Buildings and Sites, Getty Conservation Institute), Andrew Waldron (author, Exploring the Capital: An Architectural Guide to the Ottawa-Gatineau Region), Claudine Déom (associate professor, Université de Montréal, School of Architecture)

Presented in conjunction with the Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) – National Trust for Canada Joint Conference.
