ABOUT YOUR HOST
MSDO is pleased to announce that the 2017 National Conference will be held in the City of Hamilton. Bounded by the picturesque southern shores of Lake Ontario and the lush trails of the Niagara Escarpment, the municipality has a broad mix of urban centres and sprawling farmland, offering beautiful sights at every turn. Hamilton is a city of many communities, built on community spirit. From Flamborough to Stoney Creek and all points in between, the municipality is industrious and culturally diverse.
Rich in history and culture and surrounded by spectacular nature, Hamilton is a city like no other. Unique for its distinctive urban feel and vibrant arts and culture, Hamilton also boasts deep roots and a proud history.
Hamilton boasts endless experiences for the most discerning traveler. Take an exhilarating trip through nature's most beautiful work at the Royal Botanical Gardens; commemorate one of Canada's most pivotal moments during the Bicentennial of the War of 1812; set your sights on Canada's living military history at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and the HMCS Haida; drive through African Lion Safari's animal game reserves and get up-close with Lions and Giraffes; wander through one of the finest collections of art in Canada at the Art Gallery of Hamilton; take a leisurely stroll through the stalls at one of Hamilton's local farmer's market; find your sense of play at top-ranked golf course, or catch future stars in action at a Hamilton Bulldogs OHL game.
On your travels you'll find award-winning restaurants across Hamilton with committed chefs attracted by the high-quality seasonal produce across the region. Be sure to track down a local food truck for a curbside meal and rediscover that some foodie pleasures never fade; enjoy fish and chips on the beach, an afternoon ice cream on the waterfront, tea in a quaint cafe or tasting fine wine made by award winning wine-makers.
Ideally located in the heart of the country's most popular travel destinations, the City of Hamilton lies halfway between Toronto and Niagara Falls, less than an hour from each, making it an ideal destination, an attractive overnight detour, or a convenient stopover.
We look forward to welcoming you to the City of Hamilton!
