A bold, modern design, a bright naturally-lit interior, magnificent views…the Shaw Centre offers unparalleled, environmentally-responsible setting and support for Ottawa conventions, conferences, meetings and exhibits – large and small. Its 100 ft. / 31 m. high sweeping window façade faces the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site and Parliament Hill.
Level 1 features an open and inviting outdoor plaza and a Lobby/Hall with a picturesque view of the Rideau Canal and downtown. As you enter this grand facility you may be caught up in gazing at the Wall of Three Rivers – made with reclaimed wood from local rivers, it is a tribute to Ottawa’s historic roots in the lumber industry – that towers through all four levels of this iconic facility.
Level 2, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, affords even more panoramic views of the Rideau Canal.
Level 3 is the Centre’s most spacious, combining the city’s largest room with generous pre-function space for hosting large conventions, conferences, meetings, trade and consumer shows and performances.
