Today’s wanderlust took me back to almost 30 years back in life when I was a student at uottawa. Today’s campus has become very unfamiliar territory to me, despite many of the same facilities remaining. B. Com - supposed to have been class of ‘97 but didn’t complete convocation until 2001. #uottawa #university #uottawaalumni #bachelorofcommerce #wanderlust #ottawa #canada

Our Expertise



The global climate challenge is real. Business needs to lead the way to a more sustainable future for everyone. To build a solid foundation for our future, we need to completely rethink and reorient the way our economy does business. Learn More



We need to rethink our approach to healthcare from a system perspective, so that we have a better guarantee that the resources Canada puts into healthcare are doing as much as they can do for as many people as possible. Learn More



Happy people are more productive, have better health outcomes, and are more likely to contribute to their communities. We need our workplaces and economy to enhance happiness, not impede it. Learn More



We need money to get activated. We need it to work harder and generate more businesses, more leaders, and more innovations. We need it to work for Canada. Learn More
