About

Who are we?

The Legacy Conference was founded in 2010 by a student who saw the opportunity to inspire the next generation of student leaders through entrepreneurship.

Legacy happens annually in Ottawa, Ontario  in hopes to provide the next line of leaders with the necessary resources to help them cultivate new ideas, kick start their business endeavours or build onto their current ones.
