Welcome to TAC 2016 Ottawa

The Tunnelling Association of Canada is pleased to welcome you to TAC 2016 Ottawa. With the theme Capitalizing on Underground Infrastructure, the 2016 TAC conference will include plenary presentations, technical sessions, and a trade exhibition all designed to highlight advancements in tunnelling design, construction and delivery – in Canada and around the world.

The TAC 2016 Ottawa organizing committee is excited to be hosting the conference in Ottawa – Canada's capital and the location of considerable tunnelling activity for the Confederation Line LRT now under construction. The conference venue will be the Shaw Centre, located in the heart of downtown Ottawa on the Rideau Canal and next to Ottawa's bustling ByWard Market area and Parliament Hill.

Ottawa offers conference delegates much in the way of activities and excursions. It's a city steeped in culture, with world-class museums and galleries displaying stunning national collections and special exhibitions from Canada and around the world. More information on TAC 2016 Ottawa social and partner events will be available in spring of 2016.

Please join us in 2016 and come and experience Ottawa, Canada's capital! We look forward to seeing you soon!
