Get inspired and meet in Canada’s capital
Located on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Algonquin people, the area that is now Ottawa was a meeting place from time immemorial. Today, as the country’s capital, Ottawa is where Canadians gather to celebrate their shared heritage. And as a G7 capital, global technology hub and city of higher learning, Ottawa welcomes international summits, conferences and business events. We look forward to welcoming yours, with open arms.
