Carleton University will be 2021 Host

16 June 2020 – We are pleased to announce that Carleton University will be hosting the 2021 ABC Copyright Conference.

Situated on unceded Algonquin territory beside the historic Rideau Canal, an official UNESCO World Heritage Site, Carleton University was founded by the community in 1942 to meet the needs of veterans returning from the Second World War. Carleton’s location in Ottawa, Ontario provides many opportunities for scholarship and research with numerous and diverse groups and institutions.

Canada’s capital has a population of almost one million and reflects the country’s bilingual and multicultural character. Carleton University is close to Canada’s majestic Parliament Buildings, the bustling Byward Market, and the beautiful Gatineau Park.
