Chaudière Falls

As part of Canada’s 150th celebrations, Chaudière Falls is going to have a sound and light show honouring the Algonquin people who used to live in Ottawa.

“Mìwàte is a tribute to Indigenous people, created in collaboration with the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation. Representatives from local Métis and Inuit communities were also consulted.”

The experience starts just north of the Canadian War Museum, with panels that represent the history of the area. Then, continuing on foot on the new viewing platform, you travel towards the falls.

“The 10- to 15-minute production will repeat in a loop. The entire experience, including viewing the panels and walking to the viewing platform, will take 30 to 40 minutes […].

When & where: Oct. 6 to Nov. 5 at Chaudière Falls, 3 Booth St., just north of the Canadian War Museum

Show times: 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. from Oct. 6 to 22; 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. from Oct. 23 to Nov. 5”
