Ottawa Cares

Out of respect and safety for our employees, the community, and our visitors, the Ottawa Visitors Center has decided to close its physical location until May 1. We will continue to be available digitally during this time. Groups are being suggested against, so we hope that our content can bring some brightness to your day. You can continue to reach us online as well through the phone. We hope you stay safe and take this time to research our area and plan an excursion when travel is more comfortable for you.

Follow CDC guidelines at all times. Stay at least six feet away from other individuals while out in public, avoid crowds, and do not join gatherings or spaces with more than ten people present.

We will continually collect updates and aim to update this page every day. Please call businesses for most up to date information. Please send business updates to
