His Worship Jim Watson, Mayor of the City of Ottawa to Present 1,000 Days to 2017: How the City of Ottawa Will Make the Most of Canada's Big Year at Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 7, 2014) - When Canada celebrates its 150th birthday in 2017, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson has made it a priority to ensure that the City of Ottawa is at the centre of the action. After government and high-tech, tourism is the city's 3rd largest industry. Understanding this, the Sesquicentennial celebrations offer Ottawa businesses and residents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to strengthen the local economy and brand the city as the best place to visit, live, work and raise a family. Mayor Watson will provide an update on the 2017 Task Force's accomplishments to date, as well as outline how the City will build momentum in the months ahead through new initiatives.
