Walking Tours

Youth-led walking tours – Sign up in advance!

Feb 22nd (Day 3), 12:15 to 1:15, sign up and meet at Registration Desk

Please join Ottawa-based young people who have experienced homelessness in this city as they take you on a tour of Ottawa through their eyes. Walking tours will explore issues like the criminalization of public space, the effects of gentrification, survival sex work, and the resilience required to live on Ottawa’s streets. Tours are expected to last about an hour. If you need warmer clothing for a walking tour, please visit our Winter Clothing Bank, in Room FSS 5015.

Walking Tours are limited to 15 participants each. To sign up for a Walking Tour, please see the descriptions at the Registration desk, and add your name. We recommend signing up early, as there will not be enough space for all conference registrants to participate!

Please also note that media may accompany some of the walking tours. Let your Tour leader know if you would rather not be filmed by media. Also let your Tour leader know if you have any mobility issues they should be aware of (trouble with stairs, etc).
