Join Fox and Squirrel in Ottawa for three days of networking, professional development and fun! We welcome you to our habitat, the Ottawa Convention Centre, completely renovated since the last Ottawa conference in 2007.

Kick-start the weekend with our pre-conference workshops and go wild Ottawa style with the welcome reception on June 1. Every conference registration includes a ticket for the reception, but you can also buy more for guests.

Afterwards retire to our hotel of choice, the nearby Lord Elgin, also the site of this year’s Awards Banquet on June 2. Presentations include the Tom Fairley Award, Claudette Upton Scholarship, Lee d'Anjou Award and President's Award and Oops Award. The banquet includes a three-course dinner and glass of wine. Additional tickets can be purchased for your guests.

Conference swag

CafePress is where the wild things are: the fiercely stylish Conference 2012 logo is available on t-shirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, and more. But get it while you can.... After 2012, EAC conference-specific logos will be extinct. Order your swag today.


Cross paths with all your other wild colleagues in a pretty fantastic habitat: the beautiful, newly renovated Ottawa Convention Centre. Overlooking the historic Rideau Canal and attached to the Rideau Centre shopping mall, the OCC is located in the heart of downtown Ottawa close to wonderful restaurants and tourist attractions.


Feathers: Air Canada, WestJet, and Porter Airlines all arrive at the Ottawa International Airport.

Tracks: VIA Rail will get you to the Ottawa train station

Paws: Greyhound buses arrive at the Ottawa Central Station.

After you arrive in our neck of the woods, use OC Transpo for local bus and light rail travel in the city
