The Conference/InterCongress was hosted at the University of Ottawa, on the unceded, traditional territory of the Algonquins of the Ottawa River Watershed. Canada’s capital city is built on the banks of the Kitchisippi, the Great River, the Ottawa River; the Sacred Chaudière Falls and Islands have served as a meeting place of great spiritual importance to the people of North America since time immemorial.
770 delegates attended the conference over the five days, which consisted of 126 panels, more than 700 papers, nine roundtables, two keynotes, three plenaries, several workshops and meetings.
