I believe that our French culture is an asset. It is a strength. It is an opportunity. It's the history of our city, it's our collective history, it's what makes our city so special. We are proud of the bilingual character of our city!

Francophone businesses have a huge role to play in Ottawa's economic recovery.

Together, we can accomplish more than we ever could individually, and I'm pleased to see the positive impact these meetings will have on our business community and on Ottawa as a whole.
