Public consultation: 4:30 pm to 8 pm
Site visit: 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Workshop: 6:45 pm to 8 pm


Public consultation and workshop:
Mill Street Brew Pub, 555 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Ontario

Site visit:*
Departing from the outside entrance of the Mill Street Brew Pub, and consisting of the following locations: Richmond Landing, Bronson Pulp Mill, Amelia Island, Energy Ottawa power-generation facilities and Victoria Island

These initiatives are part of the NCC’s efforts to showcase and increase public access to the Capital’s shorelines. The objective of the project is to enhance public experience of the shorelines and the islands through the following:

  • Providing public access for pedestrians and cyclists from the Ottawa shoreline. Bridges could connect Richmond Landing, Victoria Island and Amelia Island.
  • Providing universally accessible routes from the Portage Bridge and Wellington Street intersection to Richmond Landing, as well as from the Bronson Pulp Mill, to allow visitors to discover the ruins.
  • Developing interpretation (Aboriginal, natural, industrial and military heritage), lookouts and wayfinding.

* Please wear appropriate footwear and weather-appropriate clothing. The site visit is not universally accessible. Should you need any form of accommodation, please let us know at
