The Heritage Fairs program is a national educational initiative based on the belief that engaging children in the history and heritage of their communities helps them develop into responsible, well-informed citizens.
Aimed at students in Grades 4-10, the Fairs inspire young people to explore the many aspects of Canadian history, heritage and culture in a dynamic learning environment and to celebrate the results of their efforts at a public exhibition.
For 15 years, the Ottawa Regional Heritage Fair volunteer committee has been working in partnership with educators, the historical, heritage and museum communities to host a bilingual Fair that brings together youth from across the Ottawa region.
The 2019 Ottawa Regional Heritage Fair will be held at the Canadian Museum of History on Wednesday, April 24.
