Immigrate to Ottawa
The Chamber believes that newcomers to Ottawa have been, and certainly will continue to be, vital for providing advanced skills, driving innovation, creating jobs, and enabling economic growth. We also take pride in Ottawa’s rich ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity, making the city an exciting cosmopolitan centre.
