Ottawa Tourism’s top priority is the health and safety of our community and our visitors. While the local COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, our website may not reflect current offerings. Please contact each business or entity directly before making plans.

Shaw Centre

Meeting venues, accommodations and suppliers

Ottawa is home to a diverse and experienced accommodations sector that includes major international hotel brands and unique boutique and local properties to meet every need and budget. Many of our larger properties offer significant meeting space and smaller rooms for executive and breakout sessions.

Ottawa’s national museums and National Arts Centre offer grand public spaces for unique off-site receptions, galas and events. These include museums devoted to history, art, nature, science and technology, aviation and space, military history, agriculture and food, and money.

The Shaw Centre is the city’s premier, state-of-the-art convention venue located in the heart of downtown next to the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site and within easy walking distance of over 6,000 hotel rooms.  And while the city’s downtown is very compact and walkable, the light rail transit system likewise links hotels to the Shaw Centre and other meeting facilities and venues in the city.
