Inspiring Science in the Capital: Investigation, Integration, and Implementation

We have shifted the dates of the workshop to recognize and increase the awareness of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (September 30). We encourage you to visit National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – Canada to learn more on how you can commemorate this day.

The 49th Annual Canadian Ecotoxicity Workshop (CEW) will be held at the award-winning Shaw Centre, in downtown Ottawa, Ontario.

With a focus on high environmental standards, eco-friendly service and its own unique tribute to local rivers (Wall of Three Rivers), the Shaw Centre is a perfect venue for CEW. It is an architectural landmark in the heart of downtown with approximately 200,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space that offers magnificent views of downtown and the Rideau Canal. It is a strong advocate for environmental respect, conservation, and sustainable living. This centre is a green building demonstration to visitors as well as a visible landmark for sustainability in Ottawa. The location is within walking distance of all the downtown activities, such as the Byward Market, Rideau Centre, Parliament Hill, Canadian Museum of Nature and the National Art Gallery. Many hotels are within a few minutes walk of the Shaw Centre and located in close proximity to each other. Hotel room blocks were chosen based on range of style (suite vs. traditional hotel room), cost, proximity to the Shaw Centre, third-party rating of sustainability, and accessibility features
