I toured Bayview Yards in my previous role with the UK Government as part of a visiting delegation and was impressed with the energy of the place, and the important part that Invest Ottawa plays in developing the local economy.

Stephen Onions

In addition, it provides a friendly, honest, and engaging workplace environment. I benefit from flexible hours, allowing me to balance between work and life. I’m truly grateful to work here!
