Discover Gatineau, your next business destination!


Known for their exceptional quality of life, Gatineau and the Outaouais region have a lot to offer. When it comes to business destinations, Gatineau, in Canada’s Capital Region, is right up there with cities like Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

Boasting an ideal combination of natural beauty and urban development, downtown Gatineau is conveniently located. Within walking distance of each other are Canada’s most visited museum, the largest convention centre, countless fine restaurants, friendly microbreweries, and a fully renovated hotel complex. And if you take one of the recreational pathways along the Ottawa River, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa!

A few minutes from the downtown core, the Hilton Lac-Leamy forms part of an entertainment complex that includes the Casino du Lac-Leamy, the Théâtre du Casino, a conference centre, a luxury spa, heated indoor and outdoor pools, and four restaurants (including one rated Five Diamonds, one of only a few in Quebec). It’s truly a top-notch hotel complex!

When you choose the Outaouais as your business destination, you’re choosing a wide range of conveniently located attractions. Gatineau Park, for instance, with its 361 square kilometres of unspoiled nature and hundreds of bike and ski trails, is just two kilometres from the Palais des congrès de Gatineau convention centre. Nordik Spa-Nature, North America’s largest spa, is less than 15 minutes from downtown.

The diversity and proximity of the region’s attractions make it an ideal destination for event planners. There’s something for everyone, from nature lovers to foodies, golfers to culture and history buffs.

To help you choose among all these options, Annie, our destination specialist, is on hand to guide you! She’s ready and willing to help you at every step of your planning process.

Do you want your event to stand out from the rest? Are you looking for ideas for original team-building activities your colleagues will remember for a long time?

Annie can help you choose all the elements for a unique and memorable event. She’s your #1 “go-to” person for everything related to business travel in the Outaouais!

So remind me: when are we meeting in the Outaouais?
