Ottawa to host in 2023

Ottawa Square Dance Convention 2023 Inc. has won the bid to host the 40th annual IAGSDC convention and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. In fact, we can’t wait to show you our beautiful city!

Now is the time to book your dream trip and you can find everything you need right here. Registration for the convention, tours and our featured signature event “Crawford2″ can all be made on our website and while you’re here check out our branded merchandise; everything you need to make this the trip of a lifetime.

Westin Ottawa DowntownLocated downtown Ottawa, the Westin is right in the middle of all the action. It is steps from the Byward Market, world-class shopping, historic sites and museums, and it promises to be your home away from home while you explore our amazing city and dance at this historic convention.


Signature: Crawford2

Dance the night away on the shores of Ottawa’s Dow’s Lake to the expert calling of Tim Crawford and Brian Crawford.

Celebrate the Fourth of July in style with your fellow canucks by enjoying a sumptuous three course meal together and then cutting a rug with two of Ontario’s best callers. Space is limited so book now!



Our executive committee is composed of experienced square dancers from several clubs in Ontario including the Ottawa Date Squares, the Cornwall Swinging B’s and the Toronto Triangle Squares.

All our efforts are backed up by the IAGSDC planning committee and this will ensure that the 40th anniversary convention will be the best one ever. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of it.
