Republishing of Ottawa’s Britannia – Order your copy today!

Originally published in 1983, Ottawa’s Britannia traces the story of the growth and change in Britannia over it’s nearly 200 year history.  Compiled and written by James Kennedy, it is augmented with the personal recollections of Eva Taylor, lifetime resident of Britannia and local historian.
Copies of this seminal work are now virtually impossible to find and valued by those that have one.  The BVCA is restoring the original text and re-scanning many of the original compelling photos to introduce this treasured book to a new generation of readers.
A limited number of copies will be available in September of 2017.  To reserve a copy for yourself, you have two options:
  1. Fill out the Pre-order form and drop it off with $25 cash (or cheque made out to Britannia Village Community Association), at 207 Britannia Rd.  Your copy will be hand delivered to you upon publication in September
  2. Order online with the publisher here.  Your copy will be shipped to your address upon publication in September.
