INNOVATE™ Ottawa – Canada

Ottawa’s name, taken from the Algonquin word for “trade,” tells you almost everything you need to know about the city and the area—in terms of its present and its history. While Canada’s capital maintains its ties to the past through world-class museums like the National Gallery of Canada; landmarks like Parliament Hill and the Rideau Canal; and attractions like ByWard Market and Gatineau Park, a group of Ottawa-based innovators—from all industries and organizations of all sizes—is pointing the way forward. They may be scattered across Ottawa, but we’re collecting them into one exquisite volume: INNOVATE™ Ottawa, Volume 1.

Currently out as an e-book and a sister volume to INNOVATE™ Montreal, INNOVATE™ Ottawa is a tech-enabled coffee-table book featuring the champions of the capital, the well-established and the disruptors alike. Its 200+ pages feature stories by the companies who are shaping the Ottawa of today and tomorrow and include exclusive Thought Leader pieces by the area’s most recognizable advocates. With AR video canvases on most features, images on the book’s pages come to life when scanned with the free Global Village Publishing app.
