In 1997, the Ottawa chapters of the Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI), the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA), the Ottawa Regional Society of Architects (ORSA) and the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) joined forces to present Urban Forum, a lecture series for their members as well as elected officials, students and the public at large in the Ottawa area. Four times per year, internationally known speakers and local experts address topics that reflect the challenges faced by the associations’ combined membership.


In 2008, Mr. Langan started High Speed Rail Canada to educate Canadians on high speed rail in Canada. It is acknowledged that High Speed Rail Canada is the single national resource on high speed rail information in Canada. Their website, youtube channel and social media are used extensively by the public to increase their knowledge on previous and present Canadian high speed rail studies.


  1. Good luck with this presentation. Hopefully you can persuade the powers that be in Ottawa to not only back high speed rail, but also to bring Ottawa's Railway Station back into it's downtown location. How on earth can a capital city not have a station located in it's centre ? It just beggars belief, only in Canada could this happen.
