Inspiring Group and FIT Experiences

Ottawa is a destination that inspires wonder, connection and fun for both groups, students and FIT. This beautiful, mid-size capital is where Canada’s stories are told at national landmarks, sites and museums, where annual festivals celebrate culture, music and heritage across the seasons, and where you can escape to the great outdoors for sightseeing, recreation and adventure. Bring your groups, students and FIT here and we’ll welcome them with open arms.
