Ottawa Convention Centre

Walking Distance from McGee's Inn - 10 Minutes

The Ottawa Convention Centre is located in downtown Ottawa, and opened in April 2011.

The Convention Centre replaces the Ottawa Congress Centre, which opened in 1983. The new Centre is built on the site of the Congress Centre building, which was demolished in 2008-2009. The Centre is located on Colonel By Drive, just south of Rideau Street. The facility is owned by the Ontario Provincial Government. The new building features a large glass facade on the Colonel By Drive front. From the outside, the entrance from the street is clearly visible and the internal escalators are also visible. The architect is Ritchard Brisbin of Brisbin Brook Beynon Architects (BBB Architects). While it has four levels of convention space, it is seven storeys in height.
