Membership Beneits

Membership Benefits

Members benefit from the opportunity for regular interaction with colleagues and provides them with a voice in municipal, provincial and federal matters that impact tourism generally and hotel operators specifically. This is done in part through OGHA’s partnership with the Hotel Association of Canada, Tourism Outaouais, the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario and Ottawa Tourism. OGHA’s President maintains regular contact with politicians and bureaucrats to ensure the interests of the industry are represented when decisions about the accommodation industry and tourism are being considered. The President also represents the interests of OGHA by sitting as the Co-Chair of the Ottawa 2017 Bureau Board of Directors, a not-for-profit organization with the mandate to attract overnight visitation to the region by delivering on local events and activities to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary.
