Terry Kell, former CEO Kanatek Technologies, Kanata and managing director of The Farm. thefarm-creative.com/
Over one hundred and fifty years old, The Farm has been transformed from its humble beginnings as a stagecoach inn on the New England-Montréal route into a beautiful meeting place. It has been designed to facilitate teamwork, new ideas and new relationships.
Minds that think freely are decoupled from the daily pressure and stress of everyday life. The spark of creativity happens when opportunity and innovation collide, and ideas flow when they are nourished in the right environment. Give people the time to think and the time to breathe and they will bring a new perspective and new energy to their challenges.
The Farm is a venue like no other as it perfectly captures the stunning beauty and vibrant nature of the Eastern Townships blended with old world, modern and contemporary architecture. Events hosted in these exclusive surroundings offer local cuisine, art and hospitality.
For delegates staying overnight, the rooms offer a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life and a return to shared values of care and service.
This is a property where executive teams can gather to re-imagine and grow their organizations.
Wisdom of the Trees is a participatory community art project engages residents of Kanata to connect with themselves, their neighbours and their community.

To inspire deeper community connections, relationships and communications through collective creativity.
