Room blocks have been reserved for Public Health 2019 conference delegates at the following hotels. To make your hotel reservation, contact the hotel directly and refer to the appropriate Group Code. Rates are guaranteed until Friday, 29 March 2019.

These hotels are located in downtown Ottawa and are within walking distance of the Shaw Centre and the Rideau Centre Shopping Mall

Booking your hotel within our room blocks is an important way to support the Association as we can incur significant costs for rooms that remain unsold. Staying “within the block” is also more convenient and helps you stay connected with the informal activities and networking opportunities that occur at the hotels during the conference.
