Building Inclusive Communities


On February 9, the City of Ottawa’s Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department will be hosting a special event that marks International Development Week – an annual celebration of Canada’s contribution to reducing poverty and raising awareness about Canadian efforts in assisting in global development.


“Building Inclusive Communities” is a partnered effort by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and Global Affairs Canada. It will highlight efforts to building more inclusive communities in Canada and partnering nations – keeping with this year’s theme, “Leave no one behind: Canada contributes to global goals.”


The event runs from 1:30 – 4:30 P.M. at City Hall in the Council Chambers register today and you can register here. A short reception will follow
