Wateridge Commemoration Project

The Dept is developing a commemoration strategy to guide how this 310 acre development will recognize Algonquin, social and military histories.

In collaboration with ERA Architects, we are designing and executing a commemoration strategy for a 310 acre site in Ottawa owned by the Canada Lands Company. The commemoration outreach program will guide how the site’s Algonquin, military, and social histories are celebrated in future land development. Our stakeholder and community consultation will include talking circles with the Algonquins of Ontario, two public open house events, walking interviews, roundtables, interviews, and cognitive mapping. It will culminate in the creation of a stakeholder and community consultation report, a military commemoration handbook, and a commemoration features catalogue.
