Back to our roots!

The Know History team is going home to Bank Street!

As of this weekend, our Ottawa office has officially moved to 384 Bank Street. The location of our first office, we have always loved this vibrant and historic community.

To mark the occasion, and to coincide with Ottawa Capital Pride and Calgary Pride festivities this weekend, we gathered some of our team together for a photo. We certainly have grown since we were last on Bank!

The mural in the background is located at the corner of Bank and Gilmour. It was commissioned by the Village Committee for the 40th anniversary of the “We Demand” demonstration, a historic moment for LGBTQ rights in Canada. Learn more about the event through The Village Legacy Project.

Happy #pride!
