The Shaw Centre (formerly the Ottawa Convention Centre) is a convention centre located in downtown Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It opened in April 2011. The Centre replaces the Ottawa Congress Centre, which opened in 1983 and is built on the site of the Ottawa Congress Centre building which was demolished in 2008-2009.


In October 2014, the Ottawa Convention Centre and Shaw Communications entered a ten-year naming right agreement that saw the venue renamed to the Shaw Centre. The Centre is located on Colonel By Drive, just south of Rideau Street. The facility is owned by the Ontario provincial government.

  • I have been there once for a workshop. It is neat and big enough. But there was not enough guide there in addition i did not kike the food. Conference hall is big enough for 4 thousands may be.
  • Nice places for events in Ottawa. Lots of configurations possible, with good amount of washrooms and a few coatcheck options. Direct access to underground parking lot is nice too. Would prefer if the chairs were slightly larger, as I’m a tall person who finds them a bit narrow and unsupportive for longer thighs.
