We have used and recommend Staples for this purpose. They have an online Copy and Print Center which we use for our our materials. By arrangement, we can pick up your printing prior to the conference and invoice you for the printing. Staples does not accept online payment for this service. We use this Staples location:

Staples Ottawa Core
403 Bank Street
Ottawa, ON K2P 1Y6
+1 (613) 235-2525

The University of Ottawa also has a print center which is very close to the conference venue.

Deadlines for inclusion

All promotional material should delivered, or ready for pickup, no sooner than 28 May and not later than 6 June.
