2017 Celebrations


In 2017, Canada celebrates 150 years as a nation–and Canadians will gather in their Capital to join local residents in a year of celebration. Ottawa 2017 is tasked with creating 12 full months of big, bold, immersive and moving experiences that will compliment 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. Ottawa 2017 is supported by a growing community of partners at the local, regional and national levels.

You thought you knew Ottawa… Think again….
