Welcome to Ottawa

On behalf of Ottawa Tourism, we would like to warmly welcome you to our beautiful city. Ottawa is proud to host CANSEC 2017.

As Canada's Capital, Ottawa is home to Parliament Hill, the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage site) site and the country's national museums. Whether it's taking part in outdoor activities, learning more about Canada's history and culture, shopping, indulging in local culinary offerings or participating in one of our many vibrant festivals, you'll never be at a loss of things to do here.

We hope that your time in Ottawa is productive and fulfilling. When your business is done, we encourage you to explore some of the many attractions of the area. We are thrilled to offer you our "Flash Your Badge" program. This tool allows you to explore Canada's capital the way YOU want to experience it! There are plenty of discounts available to you, just by flashing your delegate badge at participating attractions and restaurants in Ottawa: Click here for Flash your Badge site.
