A Special Message about our 2020-2021 Season (click here for the poster)

Dear AIA Members and Supporters,
We hope that you and your loved ones are all well, safe, and healthy during this challenging time.
As we continue to be vigilant and careful about the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to schedule our 2020-2021 program online. The lectures will be hosted via Zoom. An email with a link to the meeting will be sent before the lecture. If you have any questions about how this works, or how to use Zoom, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All of us here at AIA Ottawa want to thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and understanding as we all navigate these uncharted waters together.
Stay safe,
Chandra Giroux
Secretary
