Tourism is a major economic generator for the city of Ottawa and the surrounding region. Tourism contributes directly to local Ottawa employment and the economy in the region through the ongoing operations and activities of different businesses that sell products and services to non-local visitors. Ottawa is the nation’s capital and is home to a high quality accommodations industry, and a diverse offering of family attractions, experiences and festivals. The city’s tourism industry makes significant economic contributions to the local economy, the Province of Ontario and beyond.
Ottawa Tourism’s top priority is the health and safety of our community and our visitors, and we look forward to welcoming visitors back to the region. While Ottawa is in the reopening stages of COVID-19, our website may not reflect current offerings. Please contact each business or entity directly before making plans.
