Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Ottawa, the fourth largest city in Canada, is also the country’s stylish and attractive capital city. The impressive Gothic Revival styling of the buildings on Parliament Hill is complemented by the contemporary styling of the National Arts Centre, National Gallery of Canada, Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights Monument, the stunning Rideau Canal and other national institutions of interest. This is also the seat of national government, where legalized same-sex marriage was proclaimed into law nationally, on July 20, 2005.
Ottawa will be the host city for the Fierte Canada Pride Conference, February 7 to 10, 2019; “The Fierté Canada Pride National Conference & AGM is an annual gathering of Canada’s most influential leaders of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Two-Spirit communities, in Canada.
