Ottawa has a diverse music scene for many tastes, from clubs to internationally recognized music festivals throughout the summer. The nation’s capital has something for everyone.

Cheer on the NHL Ottawa Senators, or take in a concert at Scotiabank Place.

Take in the Ottawa International Animation Festival or the Ottawa Wine and Food Show during the fall semester, then, come February, enjoy three weekends of Winterlude on the Rideau Canal Skateway — the longest skating rink in the world.

And if shopping is your calling, then the Rideau Centre, downtown Rideau District and Sparks Street are sure to please.

“Upon graduating from the Heritage Carpentry and Millwork Program in 1994, I was employed with a restoration contractor based in Kingston for two years. This was an excellent learning opportunity for me, since I was entrusted to work independently to dismantle and reconstruct old timber frame and log buildings. Through the process of deconstruction and reconstruction of old heritage buildings, I was able to explore intimately the inner-workings (and not-workings) of these structures and develop a further understanding of traditional construction techniques.” Peter Ramsay, Carpentry and Joinery – Heritage

Part of the Community The Perth campus is an integral part of the local community. For students in the Masonry – Heritage and Traditional program, historical Perth serves as a living textbook. Students in the Construction Carpentry – Advanced Housing program have just finished construction of their seventh green home, designed with function and energy conservation as the guiding principles. In the Social Service Worker, Personal Support Worker, Office Administration – Executive, and the Early Childhood Education programs, students get the field placement opportunities they need to become productive employees of local businesses and organizations.

Throughout the year, our class was presented with both mental and physical challenges that brought us together and helped us grow as individuals. We learned that there is more to forestry than just logging. Forestry encompasses the whole ecosystem—the growth, management and care of our forests along with all the things in it. The Forestry program provided us with the skills to confidently enter the workforce and gave us more than a traditional education...it gave us a future.” NICOLE BERGEVIN, FORESTRY TECHNICIAN GRAD, 2011
