Ottawa Tourism provides destination marketing, strategic direction and leadership in cooperation with members and partners to service the travel media and attract visitors, tours and conventions to Ottawa and Canada’s Capital Region. As a not-for-profit, membership-based organization, with 350 tourism-related member businesses, its vision is to build recognition of Ottawa as an outstanding four-season tourism destination that offers a surprising blend of capital, culture, outdoor and relaxed urban experiences. Will it be visiting Parliament Hill to see the Changing the Guard Ceremony, exploring one of the many national museums or year-round lively festivals and events, cycling along the Rideau Canal (Ontario’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site) or dining al fresco on a patio in the popular ByWard Market neighbourhood?
