Ottawa has a number of great hotels in the downtown and surrounding areas. Given that it is the long weekend and there are a number of local tournaments in the city that weekend, it is recommended that teams make their accommodation arrangements as soon as possible.
The culinary scene in Ottawa has come alive in recent years, with a thriving community of Ottawa chefs and Ottawa restaurants making names for themselves both at home and abroad. As one of Ontario’s designated culinary tourism destinations, the city, it's restaurants and its local food producers are all working together to bring locally-grown and prepared foods to tables across the region through an initiative called Savour Ottawa.
Ottawa restaurants are wonderfully diverse. In the mood for French, Italian, Chinese or seafood? Choose from scores of each. Craving something a little more unique and exotic? You’ll find it. Looking for more casual fare for lunch, a large group, or a quick snack? Check, check and check. Bon appetit!
Teams are responsible for their own transportation. Ottawa is a major city with access to taxis, uber and public transit (OCTranspo buses and light rail). Car Rentals are available at the airport and throughout the city.
** Please note that the committee has not contacted any of these companies and has provided this list as a reference only. It is the
responsibility of the teams to research and verify the quality of service of the company should they choose to engage their services.
The pre-championship meeting will be held on Wednesday, July 31 at 8:00pm at the Raymond-Chabot-Grant-Thornton (RCGT) Park located at 300 Coventry Road in Ottawa. The room is located on the third floor.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the committee.
