Local Breakfast Series
in partnership with the Ottawa Board of Trade
You spoke and we listened, Orléans! The business community wants to have a regular networking event to bring us together and engage in professional development with keynote speakers and panel discussions on topics that are relevant to businesses. That’s why the BIA is proud to sponsor the Local Breakfast series in Orléans.
So far we’ve had three very successful events – on April 25 with keynote speaker Lise Bourgeois, president of La Cité, on June 18 with a lively panel discussion on what it means to build a vibrant Orléans and finally our last east end breakfast in the 2019 Local Breakfast Series was an all candidates debate with your Federal East-End Candidates.
Become an Associate Member
Many business owners see the benefits of the BIA, but are not within a BIA district. If you are not a member but would like to get involved, the Heart of Orléans BIA has created Associate Memberships. Businesses can gain from many of the benefits of full membership, with a minimal investment per year. Please contact us for more information or book a coffee meeting.
