The National Capital Section of CITE is thrilled to welcome you to attend the 2019 CITE Annual Conference to be held in Ottawa, Ontario from June 2 to June 5! The National Capital Region of Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec is home to over a million people. With a mix of urban centres, natural areas, pathways, and unique neighbourhoods, Ottawa has all the amenities of a large city and the welcoming feel of a small town.
Our program theme – Bold and Transformative Solutions – encapsulates the inter-connectivity of various modes of travel, reinventing design toolboxes to adapt to these modes, and the desire for more highly connected suburbs, internally, and to the urban core. These challenges are being faced by municipalities across Canada.
Our exciting technical program is matched by our technical tours of the city’s cycling facilities, the Confederation Line LRT, a Multi-Modal Destination Challenge, TD Stadium and Accessibility and Travel Demand Management approaches, and the City of Ottawa Traffic Operations Centre, just to name a few. The city also offers a range of social activities, from Parliament and museum tours to sporting events and visits to local breweries.
The conference will be hosted at The Westin Hotel in downtown Ottawa, located a quick walk from Parliament Hill, the Byward Market, and the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Ottawa 2019 is not to be missed! The Local Arrangements Committee eagerly waits to welcome you to the nation’s capital in June 2019.
