CBC Ottawa is proud to partner with the Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP) for Welcoming Ottawa Week (WOW)† an annual series of week-long dialogues, cultural and festive events, sports activities, documentary screenings and other fun events.
Back from a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, this year WOW calendar began with a virtual launch hosted by Alan Neal of CBC Ottawa, showcasing five Ottawa residents Welcome Ottawa Ambassador Awards for embodying kindness and generosity to newcomers to Ottawa.
Launched in 2013, the Week of Programming and Celebrations was created to welcome and showcase the hospitality of Ottawa residents to newcomers, while providing opportunities for high-quality interactions between newcomers and longtime residents.
these years WOW calendar offers over 50 free events taking place in Ottawa and Lanark-Renfrew counties.
