Pictured above (left) is Takakkaw Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Canada. The falls are fed by the meltwater of the Daly Glacier, which is part of the Waputik Icefield. The word “Takakkaw” translates to “wonderful” in the Cree language. It is one of many day trips easily accessible from Calgary. 

On the right is the iconic 39-foot tall Wonderland sculpture created by artist, Jaume Plensa. It is meant to represent the dreams of the young people of the province. Located in front of The Bow, it is a short 2 minute walk from the OSSD official conference hotel--Hyatt Regency. This  crescent shaped skyscraper has been ranked as one of the top 10 architectural projects in the world by "Azure Magazine."  

Calgary is a vibrant metropolitan bustling with arts, architecture, universities, scientific community, beautiful landscapes and western culture.  Most importantly, it is the location for the OSSD 2023 annual meeting.  We look forward to seeing you there.
