Ottawa: The City of Sport
The City of Ottawa is widely known on an international stage as our Nation’s Capital. Our reputation is that our city plays host to some of the world’s biggest political names, has exceptional dining and entertainment and is also well-known for its renowned journalism and overall media presence. One thing that isn’t talked about as much, is our diverse sport culture.
How do recreational sports connect to a balanced life?
We have long known that children who participate in extra-curricular activities, especially sport, have a higher chance of having an overall successful adult life. Sports build character, lifelong friendships, encourage discipline and focus, the list goes on and on. But did you know that children who actively participate in sports activities also have a higher success rate in post-secondary education and continue on with physical activity into their adult life?

A community sporting hero is someone who has made an ongoing contribution to sport in the greater Ottawa area. Nominate someone you know today.
