LRT: On Track for Economic Growth & Prosperity
Ottawa’s Economic Outlook is an annual luncheon that brings together business owners and executives for a series of presentations highlighting trends in the regional economy.
The 2019 event will include an important update from the Mayor of Ottawa on upcoming economic development priorities and initiatives.
Attendees will also benefit from the valuable insights of one of Canada’s top economic analysts, Doug Porter, Chief Economist with BMO.
This year’s keynote presentation from Stephen Willis, General Manager, Planning Infrastructure & Economic Development at the City of Ottawa, will focus on how investment in light rail transit will trigger related residential, commercial and mixed-use development and help strengthen Ottawa’s reputation as one of the world’s best cities in which to live, work, play, invest, study and visit.
Finally, a panel of notable local business leaders will provide a private-sector perspective of what’s on track for LRT related economic development in 2019 and beyond.
