Follow Shaw Centre

This convention centre offers 192,000 square feet of highly flexible meeting space, outstanding views of downtown Ottawa through its glass façade, and is among the most environmentally-sustainable and energy-friendly centres in North America.

The Shaw Centre has achieved AIPC Gold and LEED Gold certification standards and has been recognized as one of the top three convention centres in the world. The fully-accessible facility is equipped with leading-edge technology and column-free, carpeted meeting rooms spread out over four floors. The multipurpose hall and ballroom offer panoramic views of the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site, historic Parliament Hill, and numerous other national landmarks.

Interior walkways allow direct access to The Westin Ottawa hotel as well as the CF Rideau Centre, and the vibrant ByWard Market neighbourhood is just steps away.
