Following our HeadStart program, the CCLA would like to invite all 2017-2018 articling and LPP students to a Luncheon in the CCLA Library, from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. This informal time will give attendees the chance to network with other new articling and LPP students here in Ottawa, take a tour of the CCLA Library, and meet the CCLA Staff. There is no additional cost for attending the lunch. If you would like to attend only the lunch, please RSVP with Brenda Lauritzen.
