A MAT­TER OF PER­CEP­TION

Ottawa Business Journal - - For the Record -

This data is part of the Ot­tawa Busi­ness Growth Sur­vey. Con­ducted by Aba­cus Data and made pos­si­ble by Welch LLP, the Ot­tawa Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Ot­tawa Busi­ness Jour­nal, the sur­vey gath­ered in­put from hun­dreds of lo­cal busi­nesses. A free 36-page re­port can be down­loaded at www.ot­tawabusi­ness­growthre­port.ca.

Is Ot­tawa less in­no­va­tive than other cities, or is it only per­ceived that way by res­i­dents due to its hard-to-shake rep­u­ta­tion as a sleepy gov­ern­ment town?

With the tech sec­tor on a gen­eral up­swing, big plans for Canada’s 150th, and a host of iconic in­fra­struc­ture projects set to re­make public tran­sit, Le­bre­ton Flats and the down­town wa­ter­front, old per­cep­tions about Canada’s cap­i­tal may be due for a shakeup.
