Join the City Snow Celebration
Ottawa, Ontario
Whether you don a pair of skates and take to the ice on the Rideau canal or perch on a bench with a hot drink, there’s no question that Ottawa will offer lots of reasons to leave your hotel.

Winter is calling: Come out and Play!

Fresh snow falling over the branches of trees that line Ottawa streets will quickly pull you and your colleagues from the boardroom. Rent skates and take to the ice at the world’s longest skating rink or sit on a bench alongside it with a beavertail and cup of hot cocoa.

An Arts immersion that will warm your soul

From the paintings that line the walls at the National Gallery of Canada to the unique under ground bunkers at Canada’s Cold War Museum and the celebration of humanity at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, options are endless. Add in a National Arts Centre visit to cap the day.

Steps from Hull, Quebec Ottawa offers a duo of cultural experiences.

Walk, Ride or Drive across the bridge into Quebec. No passport required. Let yours be the first footprints in the newly fallen snow in a provincial park. Dine at a five- diamond restaurant overlooking the Ottawa skyline. Then join the rest of your team in a dance with lady luck at the tables of Casino Lac Leamy.

Celebrate all things winter then warm up to

Stay for Winterlude: the extravaganza that transforms the city snowscape into a festival for all ages. Walk through a sculpture garden made of ice. Enroll in a class at the Cordon Bleu cooking school with your team. Gain a new respect for each other.
