What is Ottawa 2017?

Ottawa 2017 is tasked with creating 12 full months of big, bold, immersive and moving experiences that will complement national celebrations and annual events and festivals. Big Signature Events will animate the entire city, while community celebrations will enliven our neighbourhoods. At the same time, transformative legacy projects will change the Capital’s urban landscape. The end result: a special year of national pride for all–and significant positive impacts for Ottawa’s tourism sector and the city as whole.
