I would like to invite all residents to a breakfast reception taking place at Ottawa City Hall (110 Laurier Ave W) to launch “Welcoming Ottawa Week 2017”. The event takes place Tuesday, June 20th from 7:30-9:00 AM.
Welcoming Ottawa Week is organized by Mayor Jim Watson’s office in coordination with the Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP). It is an annual festival that celebrates the contributions of all residents (old and new) in making our city a diverse and welcoming community to those who are new to our city as well as the contributions of immigrants.
Stittsville-resident, Murilo Torres, will be acting as one of the week’s ambassadors as he represents Stittsville and Ottawa as a whole in welcoming others.
RSVPs can be made here and accommodation requests are encouraged to be advised in advance. I hope that many residents are able to join this event and celebrate what it is that makes us courteous and welcoming to strangers throughout this, and every week.
