The event will be held beneath the plaza of the bank’s headquarters at 30 Bank St. (on the corner of Bank and Wellington streets). Among the special guests from the government, business and tourism sectors will be Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson. The museum is slated to open to the public on July 1.
After brief welcoming remarks, CCN will tour the galleries and interact with the exhibits along museum planners and guides as well as other guests. We will publish a full review in the next issue of CCN.
