Thursday Welcome Dinner

If you're getting into town early, get a jump on your networking by joining a group of your fellow editors for dinner at Les Brasseurs du Temps on Thursday, June 8 at 6 pm. This outing doubles as a tourist attraction; browse the in-house beer museum to learn about the Outaouais region's rich brewing history, sip some of the areas best craft beer and enjoy the atmosphere inside what was the area's first brewery a century ago.

Guided Tour

Much of Gatineau and Ottawa are on traditional Algonquin land. Join me on a walk to Victoria Island and tour the Algonquin summer camp.

Aboriginal Experiences offers a selection of reasonably priced tour options, but we need a minimum of 20 people to book. The basic tour involves a traditional welcome and a historical talk as we’re guided through the site. If you’d be interested in something more, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

Victoria Island is a short but lovely walk from the hotel past the Chaudière Falls. We’ll meet in the lobby of the Crowne Plaza on Thursday, June 8, at 2 p.m. and be back with plenty of time before dinner.
