About WOW

WOW is an annual, week-long series of dialogues, cultural and celebratory events, guided tours, sports activities, documentary screenings, and other fun events designed to convey the genuine welcome and hospitality of Ottawa to newcomers. 

WOW provides opportunities for quality interactions among residents, old and new. Recurring annually since 2013 on the last week of June, WOW was initiated by OLIP and proclaimed by the Mayor of Ottawa.
