Ottawa Capital 2020: Our Mandate

With Ottawa having surpassed a population of one million people, the Capital 2020 Task Force brings the collective support of voluntary business and community leaders -- from east to west, north to south -- to foster transformational change in our Nation’s Capital,  on both sides of the Ottawa River.

The Capital 2020 Task Force aims to be (1) a catalyst for economic development that revitalizes the Ottawa-Gatineau region; and (2) that guarantees a robust environment for education, employment, and innovation in all sectors that promote a thriving, dynamic urban environment. 

We strive to promote a culture of invention, inclusion, and creativity to ensure that  millennials and people of all ages, abilities, and vocation find a place they can work, live and play, four seasons of the year.  

As the Nation's Capital, we hope to realize the full potential that exists across our region.
