President’s Message

The Ottawa Gatineau Hotel Association (OGHA) is the voice of the hotel industry in Canada’s Capital Region. OGHA has 54 member hotels representing approximately 10,000 rooms and employing over to 6000 people, most of whom are full time. Membership in OGHA is exclusively for General Managers of hotels, suite hotels and motels with 50 or more guest rooms and situated within the boundaries of Ontario Regional Tourism Organization 10 (defined by the Provincial Government) and for properties located in the City of Gatineau, Quebec.  OGHA is governed by a voluntary 10-member Board of Directors elected by the membership.

“Our mission as an association of hoteliers in the Ottawa-Gatineau region is dedicated to enhancing industry profile, service excellence and tourism growth.”

Although the association is made up of competing hotels, OGHA members work closely together on issues of public policy, membership services and charitable events to increase the profile of the industry and prosperity of the industry.

On behalf of all members and the tourism community, I would like to welcome you to experience all that our beautiful region has to offer.
