The sixth annual Welcoming Ottawa Week (WOW) will take place from June 18 to 30, 2018 at various venues around the city. This event celebrates the ways Ottawans welcome new residents to the city and showcases the courage and strength newcomers demonstrate by overcoming obstacles coming to Canada.

WOW will feature more than 70 free events including sporting activities, movie screenings, panel discussions, exhibits and guided walking tours. Each event connects newcomers and long-term Ottawa residents alike, creating relationships and providing newcomers to Ottawa with a chance to experience the hospitality the city has to offer. CBC's Alan Neal will kickoff the week by hosting the official launch event on June 18. 

CBC Ottawa is proud to be a sponsor of this year's Welcoming Ottawa Week.
