For this special exhibition, each item was carefully handpicked and described by Library and Archives Canada professionals, so visitors could learn more about why every single one represents a small but important piece of our nation’s heritage. Our collection represents the documentary heritage of all Canadians. It spans our history and continues to grow as Canada evolves. The new Premiere exhibition offers a sneak peek at some eclectic collection items, including a manuscript of a play by important writer Jane Urquhart when she was a child, a design for a never-produced prototype of the ill-fated Arrow airplane, and a book from the 1700s dealing with a mysterious (at the time) illness now thought to have been a form of syphilis. We hope you will attend the launch of this exhibition, to experience this unique and fascinating perspective on some of our newest collection pieces. Tuesday, April 24, 2018 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Library and Archives Canada 395 Wellington Street, Ottawa, Ontario Free admission For more information about this event, please email bac.invitation.lac@bac-lac.gc.ca.

Local filmmakers, who by the way are generally representative of ‘every person’ within the broader Ottawa community, set aside their note books/ suits, studies, day to day drudgery etcetera, to embrace their inner filmmaker because of their love of storytelling. Through their passion and need to create, these writers, and filmmakers take us on an exploration of love and relationships; ghostly encounters; drunken buffoonery; celebrations of Canada, and hard life choices. The hope of these films is to encourage viewers to find their own unique path towards filmmaking/storytelling.
