past and how it shaped the country. Its
outstanding exhibitions explain Canada s rich
military history from earliest times to the
present, featuring the experiences of people on
the battlefields and at home.
The Museum’s dramatic
architecture is a showcase for its vast art
collection (some 13,000 pieces) and its
extensive artifact collection, including
military vehicles and artillery. The extensive
permanent exhibition highlights key events and
defining moments in Canada’s military history.
Human conflict is explored through personal
stories, art, artifacts, photographs and
interactive presentations. The panoramic
LeBreton Gallery houses a Voodoo jet,
nineteenth-century artillery pieces, tanks and a
wide range of vehicles.

Urban Quest Scavenger Adventure
It’s not rocket science, but it is a lot of fun! Working in teams and armed
with a clue package; this is the best way to get to know Canada’s capital city,
Ottawa and the reward at the end of your quest is a mystery restaurant located

best way to experience our fair city of Ottawa.

IGMA Changes Dates for IG Fabricator Workshop
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) rescheduled its IG Fabricator Workshop event, which will now take place May 3-5 in Plano, Texas, at the Intertek (ATI) Testing Facilities.
"There are two major trends affecting the fenestration industry today," says Margaret Webb, IGMA's executive director.
"The first trend is major turnover in plant personnel as baby boomers retire, taking with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in the fabrication of insulating glass just when that expertise is needed the most. Secondly, this is going on at a time when architects and engineers are upping the game on building envelope design with unusual aesthetics, improved thermal performance. This workshop is taught by industry experts who know their stuff and are willing to share their expertise and knowledge with Gen X, Gen Y and Millennials,
ensuring that this expertise gets passed on."
PCRs, Durability Testing Among Discussions at IGMA
The members of the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) were hard at work last week, hashing out technical matters and pushing forward with educational and certification efforts. The Alliance also covered emerging technologies and innovations, which rounded out the conference at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells in Indian Wells, Calif. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) task group, part of the Emerging Technology and Innovation Committee, which met last Thursday, recently developed a business-to-business Product Category Rule (PCR). This was published on the Institute for Environmental Research and Education (IERE) website last September. The possibility of a business-to-consumer version for residential is being explored.
IGMA Addresses Technical Matters
The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance (IGMA) held a technical services committee meeting Wednesday during its winter conference in Indian Wells, Calif. The meeting was held in conjunction with the Glass Association of North America's (GANA) insulating division. IGMA and GANA have formed a joint committee to address load resistance and dead load support for insulating glass units with unsupported edge conditions, something committee member Tracy Rogers said will be a
