Ottawa Board of Trade



About Us

For the past 160+ years, the Ottawa Board of Trade (OBoT) has been the Voice for business—one of the most active and vocal groups leading the commercial evolution and transformation of our region. A resilient pioneer, our origins pre-date Queen Victoria’s proclamation that Bytown (as Ottawa was then called) had been chosen the Capital City of the “Province of Canada.”

OBoT has been a driving force to launch or facilitate historic and defining “firsts” in Ottawa. Today, we are surrounded by modern conveniences and comforts borne by the sacrifices of business leaders. As we strengthen foundations and reach for new heights.

We are YOUR Ottawa Board of Trade: Advocating, Building, Championing, and Driving RESULTS that help businesses launch, pivot, recover, grow, and thrive.
