of the Quartier du Moulin, plung­ing the au­di­ence into the charm of the New Eng­land Her­itage site.

Some 2,000 res­i­dents of the Cap­i­tal Re­gion are ex­pected, for the fifth edi­tion of Jane’s Walk. More than fifty walks cel­e­brat­ing the rich her­itage of Ot­tawa and Gatineau will be of­fered.

These walk­ing tours are pre­sented free of charge and many of them are given in French, in­clud­ing those of Jean Yves Pel­letier, who will ex­plore the his­toric Notre Dame Ceme­tery in Ot­tawa and Robert Tight, who will visit Mcarthur Road and de­liver some sto­ries about the pioneers of Vanier.

"Jane’s Walk is first and fore­most a mat­ter of in­ter­ac­tion with oth­ers and with their en­vi­ron­ment," notes Louise Re­nauld-ge­orge, mem­ber of the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee.

Mem­ber of the So­ciété franco-on­tari­enne du pat­ri­moine et de l’his­toire d’or­léans (SFOPHO), Diego El­i­zondo will dis­cover the Fran­co­phone her­itage of Or­léans. Last year, he be­gan the visit on its own ini­tia­tive.

"I started vis­it­ing last year, af­ter find­ing out that there was never any tours in Or­léans. It is a way to pro­mote the his­tory of Or­léans and to show peo­ple who for­get that Or­léans has a rich his­tory.
