Ottawa is delegate friendly

As Canada’s Capital, Ottawa is an impressive yet intimate city. Ottawa offers unique urban experiences, including a surprisingly diverse culinary scene, excellent craft beers, and nightlife that ranges from the performing arts to live music venues, casinos, and relaxed patios and pubs. Your delegates will enjoy unparalleled opportunities to connect with Canada, at the world-class national museums, at numerous national sites and landmarks including the Parliament.

For delegates into recreation and adventure, Ottawa is a must-do destination, offering year-round opportunities for fun in the great outdoors, including: skating on the world’s largest rink, the Rideau Canal Skateway; cross-country skiing in the heart of downtown and downhill skiing minutes away in the Gatineau Hills; cycling trails and mountain biking; paddling and white water rafting.

For sightseers, Ottawa offers a wide range of ways to go: by bus, by boat, by bike, biplane, amphibus and electric water taxi. And Ottawa is a city of celebration, with annual festivals spanning the seasons, from Winterlude through the Canadian Tulip Festival, a full schedule of summer music and cultural festivals.
