City of Ottawa


Visit Ottawa


Ottawa is Canada’s capital, a city that reflects the country’s beauty, celebrates its diversity, embodies its spirit and tells its stories like no other. The city’s urban landscape reveals the stories of Canada around every corner, at historic and national sites, monuments and cultural institutions. It’s a city that knows how to celebrate, with annual festivals devoted to things near and dear to the hearts of Canadians, including music, arts, food and drink, and the diverse cultural communities that call Ottawa and Canada home.

Ottawa is a highly experienced and accomplished host destination for important national and international gatherings and business events. As the capital, it puts meetings on a national and international stage, providing ready access to policy-makers, diplomatic communities, research and industry experts, national associations, plus national and international media.  As a centre of research, innovation, technology and entrepreneurship, it attracts and hosts professional conferences large and small from a wide range of sectors.
