Discover Ottawa’s Neighbourhoods through the immigration Lens
The Ottawa Local Immigration Partnership (OLIP) and Heritage Ottawa are pleased to offer guided neighbourhood tours designed to showcase the contributions immigrants make to the economic and social development of Ottawa neighbourhoods. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the treasure trove of history, food, art, architecture, places of worship and the myriad of business that have flourished thanks to the hard work and creativity of successive cohorts of immigrants and their descendants. The expertly guided tours will showcase Ottawa’s iconic neighborhoods such as Chinatown, Little Italy, Lowertown East and West, Vanier, Sandy Hill, and the Byward Market. Participants of the tours will develop new appreciation for the role immigration has played in building Canada’s national capital.
