    Steve Willis, General Manager of Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development with the City of Ottawa delivered and a very informative presentation on the work the City is doing to promote Ottawa as a great place to live. Ottawa is very much scaled as a mid-sized city and although we want to continue to grow, we want to ensure it's labeled as the most liveable. 

    Steve's department is committed to work with the Chambers of Commerce, the BIA's and the small businesses to find out what it is the City needs and to implement one big project a year.
