Ottawa is the capital of Canada. Placed at the confluence of three rivers, Ottawa offers attractive views, great outdoors, beautiful museums and many other exciting attractions. Ottawa borders Gatineau (Québec), and together they form the National Capital Region, with a multicultural population of approximately 1.2 million people. With more than 1900 technology companies now employing nearly 75,000 people, Ottawa's key industries include wireless, photonics, clean tech, life sciences, aerospace and defence,
financial services, healthcare, government, and entertainment. Ottawa is also one of the most educated cities in one of the most educated countries in the world, with the University of Ottawa, a bilingual public researchuniversity founded in 1848, which now enrolls well over 43,000 students.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Ottawa!
