EDITOR'S NOTE

Prosperous Ottawa

I

t’s a lucrative time to be one of Ottawa’s top business executives. Despite the city’s sluggish economic growth in recent years, income levels have been rising for many residents – particularly those at the top of the corporate ladder. The total compensation of the top 50 executives at publicly traded companies in Ottawa jumped 21 per cent over the last year, according to an analysis of regulatory filings. When the impact of the depreciating Canadian dollar is factored in, the change is even greater. Collectively, this group earned C$48.3 million in their most recent fiscal year, up more than a third from C$36.1 million a year earlier. A full list of the highest-paid executives of public companies in Ottawa can be found on pages 78 and 79. Executive pay packages have been criticized globally for being disconnected from the growth rate of wages of rank-and-file employees, as well as from the long-term performance of the company. In Ottawa, however, there are signs that the latter criticism holds little weight. Supply chain software firm Kinaxis, among others, says that no part of its executive compensation program is directly correlated to the company’s share price. In theory, this reduces the incentive for managers to chase quarterly earnings at the expense of long-term objectives. Elsewhere, there are signs that corporate pay packages are aligned with the health of the company and wider industry. Mining firm Orezone said it was reducing the salaries of two of its top executives by roughly 40 percent “until market conditions improve.” Similarly, telecom company Dragonwave – which reported its 23rd straight quarterly loss in July – said it was cutting the base salaries of its executives due to “financial constraints.” The inequality criticism is harder to counter. While some executives took a pay cut last year, this group of already well-paid businesspeople arguably had a better year financially than most residents. While this raises fresh questions about the concentration of wealth among some of the city’s top income earners, other figures suggest this issue is becoming less of a citywide concern. The percentage of households earning $80,000 or more has declined from 53.9 per cent in 2014 to 48.7 per cent last year (see page 2). While that’s failed to shrink the number of low-income households at the opposite end of the spectrum, it’s swelled the ranks of middleincome earners. At the same time, growth in personal income per capita and retail sales are projected to accelerate this year (see page 4), painting a

picture of increasing prosperity in the nation’s capital. What’s in Book of Lists This publication is divided into five chapters that focus on the city’s key economic sectors. Each section opens with a page of facts and figures about a specific industry and is followed by a Who’s Who guide that introduces several of the sector’s top executives. As always, the rankings of the largest firms – broken down into more than three dozen industry categories – are the heart of the Book of Lists. We’ve added several new lists in 2016, including the region’s largest craft brewers (page 44), extended stay and furnished suite providers (page 57) and financial planners (page 63). Each chapter closes with a mini-list, such as a look at some of the city’s busiest intersections (page 18), hottest real estate markets (page 30) and promising tech startups (page 40). The back of the Book of Lists looks at the largest government contracts awarded to local firms (page 74 and 75), the biggest construction projects (page 76 and 77) as well as the aforementioned data on executive compensation. This Who Makes What feature has been expanded to also include salary data on employees of provincially funded organizations. A full index appears on the following page. Credit where it’s due This publication is only possible with the cooperation of all the companies and organizations that responded to our requests for information. Without their willingness to provide accurate and up-to-date data, the Book of Lists would not be possible. Another huge thanks goes out to OBJ’s researcher, Patti Moran, who spent countless hours sending out surveys and organizing the results. Jacob Serebrin compiled the information appearing in the Who’s Who profile pages. The Book of Lists is produced by OBJ graphic designer Regan Van Dusen. This publication is also available for purchase in a digital format, with our databases organized in an Excel file, at OBJ.ca. Whether you prefer the print or digital edition, the Book of Lists is a useful business directory, buyer’s guide and research tool that will be a versatile resource for your organization throughout the year.

igher federal government spending, robust non-residential construction activity and expectations of a blockbuster year for tourism in 2017 will accelerate local economic growth in the coming years, according to the Conference Board of Canada. The think tank reported that Ottawa–Gatineau’s economy has been “sluggish” since 2012 as the former federal government cut spending and laid off thousands of public servants. The Conference Board of Canada said local real GDP grew by an annual average rate of just 0.6 per cent between 2012 and 2015. However, the situation is expected to change this year as the new federal government increases spending. Meanwhile, construction of Ottawa’s light-rail line, major renovations in the parliamentary precinct and a string of major events celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday will bolster other economic sectors.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top law firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 17 for a complete list of the sector’s largest companies in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Katherine Cooligan, regional managing partner, Borden Ladner Gervais’ Ottawa office Katherine Cooligan says her favourite thing about being a lawyer is making a difference in people’s lives. While her key responsibilities include developing a strategic plan for the office and chairing the regional management committee, she remains a practicing lawyer and works as a litigator specializing in family law. She says her career highlights include an appeals case where she successfully argued for a father to prevent a mother from moving away with the children. At the time, she says, courts usually sided with the mother.

Allan O’Brien, senior partner and partnership chair, Nelligan O'Brien Payne Allan O’Brien says his job is to be a “fair referee” for his colleagues. While his key responsibilities include chairing meetings and acting as a sounding board for others at the company, Mr. O’Brien's main role at the firm is a practicing lawyer. “I find that every time a new file comes to me, there’s always the excitement of the story, the facts [and] how the law may apply to it,” he says.

“Mobility is probably one of the most difficult custody issues that a family can face,” she says, explaining that it means one parent will no longer be as involved in their children’s lives. Ms. Cooligan has been in her current position – which is voted upon by partners at the firm – since July 2014. Her previous roles include managing her office’s litigation department. Before joining BLG, she spent 16 years at Gowlings, where she worked as an articling student, associate and partner. Ms. Cooligan and her firm are highly involved in the community, supporting a long list of charities including the United Way. She also sits on the board of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation.

Mentoring younger lawyers is also one of his favourite parts of the job, Mr. O’Brien adds. He’s also enjoys working with his son, who joined the firm nine years ago and is now also a partner. Mr. O’Brien’s previous positions include being the managing partner of the firm for 20 years and, before becoming a lawyer, working as a high school teacher for two years. On the management side, his career highlights include helping the firm grow from six lawyers to more than 40. As a lawyer, his career highlights include representing the Chief of the Defence Staff during the Somalia Inquiry and representing police officers during the Arar Inquiry. He says the latter case was particularly interesting because so much of the evidence was top secret and presented behind closed doors, giving him an inside look into the workings of spy agencies.

Wayne Warren, managing partner, Gowling WLG's Ottawa office Wayne Warren started at Gowlings in 1988 as an articling student before becoming an associate and eventually a partner specializing in business law He’s been in his present role for five years and is currently in the midst of his second four-year term in the position, which is voted upon by other partners at the firm. As the managing partner, he says he has a wide range of responsibilities that include

financial management, marketing, business development as well as preventing and resolving conflicts of interests. “It’s a soup-to-nuts type of a position,” he says. “I do like the fact that I never know what’s going to happen on a given day,” While he continues to do some client work, he says his main focus is on managing the firm. Mr. Warren and his colleagues try to maintain a high level of community involvement in addition to maintaining an extensive pro bono program. He’s a supporter of the United Way and has helped raise money for the organization at the office. He also supports hospice care in Ottawa as well as a courtroom at the University of Ottawa that hears real cases and acts as a training tool for law students.

Vehicle traffic Pedestrian crossings

Ottawa’s top intersections

Bus stops Transitway stations

A

s Ottawa’s population continues to grow, more and more residents are taking to the city’s roads, crosswalks and buses to complete their daily commute. Where are some of the most heavily travelled intersections in Ottawa? Last year, the city counted the volume of traffic passing through 526 of the city’s approximately 15,880 intersections. The following tables show where the highest volume of vehicles and pedestrians are located among those 526 intersections. Similarly, OC Transpo also monitors the volume of passengers at its bus stops and Transitway stations. However, officials caution that many riders are altering their travelling patterns due to significant changes that have been made to Ottawa transit routes over the last year to accommodate construction of the O-Train Confederation Line.

SECTOR SNAPSHOT

T

he number of housing starts fell below 5,000 homes in 2015, the first time it has dipped below that threshold in at least seven years, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. The Conference Board of Canada says the “soft” pace of residential construction can be attributed to weaker demand for new homes caused by public sector job cuts and a sluggish

economy. However, the think tank expects residential investment activity to pick up in 2016 in line with a gradually improving economy. The local home resale market remained strong, with the number of transactions hitting a six-year high. On the commercial side, Ottawa’s office, industrial and retail vacancy rates have all crept up over the last year.

REAL ESTATE

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top commercial real estate brokers in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 23 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Aik Aliferis, CEO and co-founder, Primecorp Commercial Realty Since Aik Aliferis started Primecorp Commercial Realty with three colleagues in 1998, some things have changed. The business has grown, and the founders have given themselves more formal titles. But for Mr. Aliferis, it’s still a hands-on job. “I’m handling all the day-to-day negotiations on all the deals, same as I did as on day one,” he says. His previous roles include real estate sales. However, his first job was working for his father, who owned car dealerships and collision centres. “My mother didn’t want me to be in the

car business,” Mr. Aliferis says. “She told me I had to do something where I would wear a suit.” Real estate, he says, was a natural fit. Mr. Aliferis says his career highlights include several large transactions, including a sale worth more than $200 million of eight multi-residential properties in Toronto; the sale of Westmount Square, an iconic retail and office complex in Montreal; and the sale of the Whitby Mall outside Toronto. “There was a time that I thought a $5 million deal was a large deal. Then I realized I could be doing $300 million deals,” he says. He’s also involved in the community, supporting the Ottawa Heart Institute, hospitals in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal as well as the YMCA and the United Way.

Shawn Hamilton, Vice-president and managing director, CBRE’s Ottawa’s office Shawn Hamilton entered the commercial real estate industry as a researcher, but says he hadn’t planned on it leading to a career. “I wound up in commercial real estate by accident,” he says. “The industry and I seemed to agree with one another.” Armed with an educational background that includes an undergraduate degree in English and geography from the University of Toronto, Mr. Hamilton’s prior jobs include

working as a broker focused on downtown office leasing. He has been in his current role since October 2014. His key responsibilities include supporting his staff, making sure that customers are well-served and acting as the face of the company in Ottawa. “What excites me is problem solving,” he says. “How do I marry my skill set and the tools that the company has to help inspire one of my teammates to do more than they could have had I not showed up to work that day?” He says his career highlights include working on the Nortel account during the company’s rise, helping Export Development Canada renew a 300,000-square-foot lease and, more recently, working with a bank to help it lease a similar amount of space. He’s involved in the community, volunteering to help put on ski races for children.

Warren Wilkinson, Managing director, Colliers International’s Ottawa office Warren Wilkinson says Colliers is a place where collaboration takes precedence over competition. “Sales offices can be pretty cutthroat,” he says. “[But] that’s not what it’s like at Colliers at all.” Instead, Mr. Wilkinson says it is an environment where working together and having fun is encouraged. He says his favourite part of the job is seeing his colleagues succeed, as he knows that the business grows through their success. Mr. Wilkinson has officially been in his

present role since late May, although he held it on an interim basis for eight months. With an educational background in law, his previous positions include working as an evidence clerk for Compensation Court of New South Wales, Australia. He got his start in the real estate business working as a researcher and market analyst before moving into sales and specializing in industrial and logistics property. He says his career highlights include working with Manulife’s real estate portfolio for seven years and watching it grow. He also names leasing all of the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan’s development at 1101 Polytek St. at above market rates within 18 months as another professional accomplishment. Mr. Wilkinson is active in the community as a volunteer head coach for Kanata Little League and Kanata minor hockey teams. He’s also participated in a charity boxing match, among other fundraising activities.

REAL ESTATE

Ottawa’s hottest neighbourhoods

O

ttawa’s housing market may not have reached the dizzying heights of Vancouver or Toronto, but residential real estate prices have climbed rapidly in recent years. Since 2009, the average resale price of a home has increased by nearly one-third, according to Ottawa Real Estate Board statistics compiled by Ottawa Business Journal. However, the citywide average glosses over significant differences in various parts of the city. For example, prices in Rockcliffe actually declined eight per cent to $1.15 million. But housing prices were shooting up elsewhere in the city, with the biggest jumps occurring in a mix of centrally located neighbourhoods, Ottawa’s inner suburbs and communities outside the Greenbelt. Using the Canadian Real Estate Association's home price index that provides a more precise picture of real estate price trends in a given neighbourhood, here are 15 of the hottest housing markets in Ottawa.

The last time venture capital and private equity investments approached that level was in 2013, when commerce firm Shopify netted $100 million in a single series-C round. This time around, investors are placing smaller sums of money with more firms. Recipients include data centre memory firm Diablo Technologies and semiconductor company GaN Systems.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top photonics companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 37 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Sam Bucci

, senior vice-president and general manager of optical networking, Nokia When Sam Bucci stepped into his current role six years ago, his job was to transform the optical networking unit. “We took a business that, let’s say, was not operating as well as it could,” he says. “And we turned it around.” His team built a new technology portfolio from scratch that’s now used by more than 660 customers – something Mr. Bucci says is a career highlight. His previous roles span a wide range of positions, including research and development, product design, service delivery, supply chain operations, business development and sales as well as other

Doug Alteen

, vice-president of telecom product line management, Lumentum Lumentum might be a new name, but it has a long history in Ottawa. The company was formed in August 2015 from JDSU’s optical communications portfolio as well as its commercial laser and 3D sensing and gesture recognition products. Doug Alteen oversees the telecom business, the company’s largest segment, as well as 3D sensing. He’s been in his current role for more than four years, but has been with Lumentum and, before that, JDSU for 13 years.

management roles. He says one of his favourite parts of the job is helping customers solve business challenges. However, Mr. Bucci says he also enjoys working with the company’s technology. “We build a lot of cool stuff and I get to work with a lot of really smart people,” he says. Mr. Bucci’s educational background includes an engineering degree from McGill University. He’s also involved in the community and sits on the board of directors of CENGN, a nonprofit that links researchers with industry leaders to commercialize nextgeneration communication technology. As well, he supports children’s hospitals in Ottawa and Montreal.

Many of his previous positions were sales and marketing roles where he focused on helping customers, but he’s also worked in research and development. Mr. Alteen’s key responsibilities include working with clients to identify their technology requirements, in addition to working with the R&D department to prioritize projects as well as supporting the sales team. He says a career highlight was working through the tech boom of the late ’90s and, after the bust, rebuilding on a more solid foundation. Mr. Alteen and his team are involved in the community, supporting the United Way and the Ottawa Senators Foundation. The company also allows employees to take what it calls “voluntary time off,” which allows them to donate their time to a community organization during the workday. He says such programs both help the community and act as a team-building activity.

Subir Chadha, Area vice-president of sales, Cisco’s Ottawa office Subir Chadha says a big part of his job is thinking about “what’s coming around the corner.” In an industry where technology changes quickly, he says he tries to think about what his customers will need three years from now. “Setting the game plan for the mediumterm and structuring the business to adapt is the most fun [and] exciting part,” he says. Mr. Chadha has been in his current role for slightly less than a year. His key responsibilities include representing Cisco’s brand and driving value for shareholders by generating revenue. His previous positions include 10 years working at Bell Canada. Mr. Chadha’s educational background

T: 613-232-2228 F: 613-231-4888 Toll Free: 866-532-2207

is in science and he holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Calcutta in India. A notable project that Mr. Chadha worked on was Justice Ontario’s video network during his time with Bell. The system, developed in partnership with Cisco, enables videoconferencing between police stations, jails, courtrooms and lawyers’ offices. It allows individuals in custody to make court appearances and speak to their lawyers remotely and securely, protecting attorneyclient confidentiality.

Startups to watch A new cohort of Ottawa entrepreneurs are working to make life easier for shoppers, e-mail marketers and couples in need of legal advice. All profiles by Adam Feibel

analytics. The kiosks also use facial recognition technology to determine users’ average age and gender, and the company employs Wi-Fi to detect where people are moving in the mall after using the signage. That means it can tell if a person who searched for a particular store actually ended up there, or if they went somewhere else. The data can also help indicate whether on-screen promotions are having a significant effect on people who use the info signs.

Miralaw

America such as California, the figure can be as high as 80 per cent, the company says. The company started in 2014 as a legal analytics firm focused on using court data to predict legal outcomes based on previous cases. After extensive datacrunching, the firm narrowed its focus to family law, an area of highly predictable outcomes. “Judges in family law very rarely deviate from what the law says,” explains Samuel Witherspoon, the founder and CEO of Miralaw. Thistoo pulls information from users’ files, analyzes them and then guides users through their divorce using four core pillars: plan, organize, agree and resolve. The objective is to get each person to move through those steps individually.

the click-through rate: the percentage of people who not only open the e-mail, but who follow the link to the product being promoted. The industry average for e-mail click-through rates is around three per cent, according to statistics compiled by MailChimp, an email marketing service. RareLogic says it’s seeing an average of 10 percent and as high as 18 per cent in some stores that use its product, “just by giving people content they actually care about,” says CEO Rob Lane.

Do-it-yourself divorce law app

After striking a deal with a major Canadian property manager, an Ottawa startup could soon have its digital directory technology installed at shopping centres across the country – and is already looking at expanding into foreign markets, too. Interactive Studios, founded by current Carleton University students Patrick Millward and Colin Pritchard a little more than a year ago, makes digital information kiosks meant to help visitors to shopping malls or other large complexes such as hospitals not only find their way to their destination but also obtain more information about each shop and get alerted to nearby events and special promotions. The company’s biggest selling point might well be its products’ data collection potential. Everything a user touches while using one of Interactive Studios’ digital information screens is recorded in the background and used for detailed

There are more than a few eyebrowraising statistics when it comes to divorce in Canada. For example, the most recent figures indicate that nearly half of all marriages in this country will ultimately end in divorce. Even more interestingly from a business perspective, the majority of those who get divorced choose to represent themselves rather than hire a lawyer. That’s where the creators of a web application called Thistoo see a major market opportunity. Ottawa-based law technology firm Miralaw has designed the app as a virtual lawyer that will guide users through the legal process of divorce. According to the Law Society of Upper Canada, anywhere from 50 to 70 per cent of family law litigants are self-represented in Ontario. In other parts of North

Ottawa tech startup RareLogic is out to put an end to “one-size-fits-all” e-mail marketing blasts. Founded in 2014, the company has been growing rapidly among online retailers looking to learn more about their customers and keep them coming back to buy more using RareLogic’s predictive data engine. The company looks at each customer individually, tailoring a message according to what each person is likely to respond to, rather than mass-e-mailing a single promo. The system works by gathering data on existing customers – such as which products they’ve purchased and when they tend to do their online shopping – and crunching it into a personalized profile of their individual buying habits, with suggestions for products they’re mostly likely to buy next. The main measure of effectiveness is

An Ottawa startup that provides automated merchandising for online retailers is making major strides after landing contracts with e-commerce companies Shopify and Magento. With e-commerce sales in Canada expected to hit almost $30 billion this year, there’s little question that online retailers are selling to a large and rapidly growing market. But in a space that’s more competitive than ever, particularly in the fashion e-commerce subsector, visuals and other accompanying digital content are essential. Looking to enter the thriving business space that launched fellow Ottawa company Shopify’s success, ZINation has developed technology that lets retailers make elaborate and engaging e-magazines to allow customers to view products much like they would flip through a fashion catalogue. “A product that has value needs to be presented in better packaging, and that better packaging goes beyond a Shopify store where you have (just) pictures presented. How about presenting them in a (way) that the fashion industry knows very well?” explained CEO David Ker.

he Conference Board of Canada expects overnight visits to the National Capital Region will rise 2.7 per cent this year, thanks to the low Canadian dollar and relatively modest gas prices that make travelling to Ottawa by car from nearby border states more affordable.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top hotels in Ottawa-Gatineau. See pages 49 and 51 for a complete list of the largest facilities in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin Daniel Laliberté, regional director of hospitality for Larco Hospitality, which owns and manages the Fairmont Château Laurier and manages the Ottawa Marriott Staying competitive in the hotel industry isn’t easy. “It really doesn’t matter if it’s a two-star or a four-star [facility]. There’s competition at every level and there’s over 11,000 hotel rooms in Ottawa,” says Daniel Laliberté. That means you have to “treat your customers very well.” Mr. Laliberté has been in his current role since November 2015. Previously, he spent 16 years as the general manager of the Ottawa Marriott. Mr. Laliberté has been in the hotel business his entire career, getting his start in the food and beverage industry at the age of 16. His resume includes stints at hotels in seven provinces. Moving up the ranks at a single hotel often requires one to wait for

Ross Meredith, general manager, Westin Ottawa

Ross Meredith says being a good manager is all about finding a balance that keeps employees, owners and customers happy. “We have three key stakeholders and they’re all equally important,” he says. “If we take great care of our associates, they will take great care of the guests and – guess what? – the owner is being well taken care of.” He’s been in his current role for just under two-and-a-half years, but has 10 years of experience as a hotel general manager. His previous roles include managing hotels in Calgary and California. He was also part of the opening team for a new Fairmont

someone else to leave, he says. However, “if you move around, you can create your own opportunities.” Mr. Laliberté says his career highlights include managing two different hotels as they went through a rebranding process. He’s won awards for his work, including Volunteer of the Year from Ottawa Tourism and Hotelier of the Year from the Ottawa Gatineau Hotel Association. Mr. Laliberté’s community involvement includes past terms on the boards of Ottawa Tourism and the Ottawa Gatineau Hotel Association. Additionally, the Marriott Ottawa is a supporter of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and donates food to the Shepherds of Good Hope every winter.

hotel in Dubai and held a senior role on the food and beverage team at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. His favourite part of the job is getting out of his office and walking around the hotel, meeting with staff and guests. He usually starts by greeting housekeeping staff, which he says are “undoubtedly the hardest-working team in any hotel in the world.” Mr. Meredith’s community involvement includes sitting on the boards of Ottawa Tourism, where he’s the vice-chairperson, the Ottawa Gatineau Hotel Association and the Christmas Cheer Breakfast. The Westin Hotel has raised more than $2 million during the annual holiday breakfast, which has been running for more than 25 years.

Claude Sauvé, General manager, Fairmont Château Laurier Claude Sauvé’s first job in the hotel industry, 55 years ago, was in the Château Laurier’s front office. Now, he’s the hotel’s general manager, a position he’s held for 18 years. His previous jobs include a variety of senior roles at CN Hotels, including president, as well as senior vice-president for Canadian Pacific Hotels. He says his favourite part of the job is how different every day can be. For example, the day a sinkhole opened on Rideau Street, “we needed to spring into action as a team to ensure that all of our guests were taken care of as we navigated

through no power, no gas and limited street access,” he says. A couple weeks later, the hotel hosted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, U.S. President Barack Obama and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto during the Three Amigos Summit of North American leaders. Mr. Sauvé’s awards include winning the Ottawa Tourism Achievement Award in April. This year he was also inducted into the Order of the Good Bear, which recognizes supporters of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

TOURISM

Escape Bicycle Tours: Founded by Maria Rasouli – an Iranian immigrant whose love of cycling stems from biking through the fields and forests of her home village near the Caspian Sea – offers daily guided sightseeing bicycle tours to major attractions in Ottawa-Gatineau. Escape Bicycle Tours offers several packages, such as trips aimed at giving visitors an introduction to the city’s major landmarks as well as journeys to some lesserknown sights.

Partnership of the year Music and Beyond and the National Gallery of Canada: More than 1,200 attendees filled the National Gallery on a summer evening last year and were treated to some 150 short performances throughout the building that matched the art of each gallery with music.

Ottawa’s top performers A selection of winners from this year’s edition of Ottawa Tourism awards. Event of the year (festival) CityFolk: With a new venue at the redeveloped Lansdowne Park, this five-day celebration of music, dance and community attracted more than 50,000 spectators with performances by Van Morrison, Wilco, Of Monsters and Men, UB40 and more than two dozen other artists on various stages. CityFolk – which was previously known as the Ottawa Folk Festival – also featured free music and activities in the Aberdeen Pavilion, as well as an outdoor kids’ zone.

Event of the year (exhibition) Canadian War Museum – Gladiators and the Colosseum: Death and Glory: Rare weaponry and armour from the gladiator barracks in Pompeii, as well

as actual pieces of the Colosseum, gave visitors insights into the lives of armed athletes who fought – often to the death – to entertain and inspire residents of ancient Rome. The exhibition came to the Canadian War Museum in 2015, its only North American stop.

New companies of the year Escape Manor: This interactive attraction locks teams of six people together in a room and gives them 45 minutes to escape by uncovering a series of clues that leads to a key. Escape Manor now features more than a half-dozen rooms – all centred around different themes – in its three locations on Queen Street, in Hintonburg and inside the Diefenbunker. Founded by Ottawa-area residents Billy Rogers, Chris Bisson, Steve Wilson and Neil Schwartz in late 2014, Escape Manor is now the top-rated fun-and-games activity in Ottawa, according to reviews on TripAdvisor.

What do you do if you’re DJ-ing a wedding where the father of the bride falls off the stage after giving his speech and ends up with a broken leg? If you’re Steven Carnaffan, you finish the PHOTO BY GREG TECKLES reception, tear down your gear and set it up again at the hotel where the wedding guests were staying, some 17 kilometres away. Then when the father of the bride shows up in a wheelchair at 1:30 a.m. after being treated for his injury at the hospital, you play the father-daughter song he missed at the reception as other guests prop him up so he can have his wedding dance with his daughter. Mr. Carnaffan’s extraordinary efforts earned him an Ottawa Tourism Star of the City award late last year. The program recognizes individuals who provide outstanding customer service to visitors and residents of Ottawa.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top associations in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 62 for a complete list of the sector’s largest organizations in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin Leslee Thompson, CEO, Accreditation Canada.

Behind the scenes of Canada’s healthcare system, national standards are in place to ensure high-quality care. Setting those standards is Accreditation Canada. “Our client base includes almost every part of the healthcare system,” says Leslee Thompson. She’s been in her current role since February 2016. She’s also the CEO of Accreditation Canada International, a sister organization that has brought Canadian standards to 26 countries around the world. Ms. Thompson’s past roles include working as the president and CEO of Kingston General Hospital. She was also a vice-president at medical device company Medtronic and previously oversaw major changes to how cancer care services are

John Hoyles CEO, Canadian Bar Association

The work of the Canadian Bar Association is pretty diverse, says John Hoyles. He says it includes advocacy around Canadian law and access to justice, professional development for lawyers as well as international human rights work. Mr. Hoyles has been in his current role for 20 years. His previous positions include working in a gold mine in his northern Quebec hometown of Val-d’Or; practicing law in northern Ontario; building up his own practice; and, for 10 months, working for then-prime minister Joe Clark. He also headed the GST consumer information office and was the executive

delivered in Ontario. She got her start in healthcare working as a nurse. That experience, she says, shaped her values and approach to her more recent positions. “I used to nurse the patients. Now I get to nurse the system,” she says. Working at Kingston General Hospital was a career highlight for Ms. Thompson. The hospital was in financial trouble when she arrived. She helped turn it around with a cultural change that put patients at the table when decisions were made. Outside of her work in healthcare, Ms. Thompson’s community involvement includes sitting on the board of the Daughters for Life Foundation, which provides scholarships and educational opportunities to young women from the Middle East.

vice-president and general manager of the National Capital Commission. One of his favourite parts of the job is the people. He says he’s worked with thousands of lawyers who volunteer their time to work with the organization. Among his career highlights is a Canadian Bar Association report on the future of the practice of law, as well as an online wellness program to help lawyers deal with stress, anxiety and depression. Outside of his work, he’s also involved in the community, sitting on the board of the Bruyère Continuing Care Centre as well as his golf and country club.

Brock Carlton, CEO, Federation of Canadian Municipalities

Canada’s urban population continues to increase year after year, placing cities and towns on the front lines of many of the main challenges facing the country, Brock Carlton argues. “The future health and well-being of the country will, in large part, be determined by how cities are managed and resourced, and the role they play in the decision making of the country,” he says. He’s been in his current role for 10 years and has spent 24 years at the FCM. His previous positions include roles in international development. He ran a program in China before returning to Canada to be the director of the organization’s international programs.

His educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in international affairs. His favourite part of the job is “taking the time to think about the future directions of the country and the role of municipal governments in those future directions,” he says. Mr. Carlton is also involved in the community outside of his work. He is a founding board member of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness, has helped start a bike share program in west Ottawa and sat on the board of directors of United Way Ottawa.

AWARDS, ORGANIZATIONS AND OTHER BUSINESS SECTORS

Ottawa businesswomen of the year

O

ttawa’s top female executives were recognized for their business acumen, leadership, expertise and community involvement earlier this year at The Women’s Business Network’s 33rd annual award gala. Prior to the event, Ottawa Business Journal's Lucy Screnci spoke with the nominees, including the evening’s three category winners:

ENTREPRENEUR CATEGORY

Margo Crawford President and CEO, Business Sherpa Group OBJ: What is your proudest business accomplishment? MC: My proudest business accomplishment is the last company that I formed independently, the Business Sherpa Group. I worked in a corporate environment and prior to that I was a co-founder of a technology company with other individuals. This was truly something that I created on my own, so I’m very proud of actually seeing it come to life and now [growing] with a great team of people. OBJ: Who is your greatest inspiration? MC: My parents are my greatest inspirations. They weren’t professionals – my father left school at Grade 10 and my mother went back to work in her late forties after raising her five kids. Seeing her setting a goal and work at it despite the barriers that life’s journey can present is rather inspirational. My father was all about having a strong work ethic and always helping others. He believed that the effort you put into work, and always jumping in to help others, truly defines a person. That was very much instilled in me. These core values have continued to inspire me and shed insights into my business. OBJ: What is the biggest professional obstacle you’ve had to overcome? MC: I had a personal health issue at a time when my career was just marching along. I was diagnosed with breast cancer right when demands were high due to running a technology startup and raising a young family. It was an acute reminder of how life has its own plans. It was a tough time, no question about it, but I learned a lot from it. It was very affirming in many ways because I was very happy about the choices I had made up until that point and I didn’t have any regrets, particularly around how family has remained the centerpiece, even with a demanding career. OBJ: How did it feel to be nominated? MC: My team really supported me on this, so I’m very humbled. I looked around at the other finalists and

PROFESSIONAL CATEGORY

there are incredible women doing incredible things, so I just feel very honoured to be amongst that group.

Vice-president, Broadway Across Canada OBJ: What is your proudest business accomplishment? SL: One of my greatest achievements has been the growth of our annual Subscription Series in major markets across the nation, helping to make theatre a critical part of our cultural fabric. The work we do in the development and nurturing of our series is a huge undertaking and remains an opportunity for growth and continuous learning for me. As a part of our series, we have presented some of the most beloved productions of all time, including Disney’s The Lion King, Wicked, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, The Book of Mormon, Chicago, Mamma Mia!, Cats and Rent. OBJ: Who is your greatest inspiration? SL: I am inspired by so many people. Holistically, my inspiration comes from a sense of pride in the work that I get to do every day. I have the enviable privilege to work in an industry that I love, with superiors, associates and staff that I respect and admire and a client population that shows their appreciation through their ongoing support of the product we provide. Some of my greatest joy comes from the excitement I see in the eyes of our patrons, particularly children, including my own, attending our productions. In 2011, we presented 32 performances of Disney’s The Lion King at the National Arts Centre. Standing at the back of Southam Hall and watching the smiles, gasps and tears that were evoked as the animals paraded down the aisles of that theatre is an experience that I will always cherish. OBJ: What is the biggest professional obstacle you’ve had to overcome? SL: I don’t know that I can itemize one specific obstacle but rather say that life both professionally and personally is rarely simple and navigating through life’s obstacles successfully is a practised skill. Live theatre is a more analogue art form in what is now a highly digitized world. Nourishing new audiences remains as paramount as ever, while the ability to engage those new audiences is more challenging than ever before. OBJ: How did it feel to be nominated? SL: I am so genuinely flattered to have been nominated. It is a humbling experience to be ranked alongside such remarkable women who have accomplished so much

Deborah Bourchier Managing partner, Ginsberg Gluzman Fage & Levitz LLP OBJ: What is your proudest business accomplishment? DB: My proudest accomplishment was being elected managing partner of GGFL in 2008. My predecessor and my mentor, Gerald Levitz, held the role for 25 years. He had a very significant influence on my career. To ultimately take over his position as managing partner was a proud time for me. OBJ: Who is your greatest inspiration? DB: I can’t just have one! My greatest inspirations are the founders of GGFL, Leon Gluzman and Joseph Ginsberg. They were young men with young families who took a risk and started a firm in 1946. They built it on relationships, integrity and professionalism, and this year we’re celebrating our 70th anniversary. I’m also inspired by the young professionals we hire. Most of the staff join GGFL as new graduates or co-op students, and they want to grow and learn with the firm. They show us their entrepreneurial spirit from a young age, and that’s inspiring to me. We make sure that we’re leading them and helping them grow in their professional lives. OBJ: What is the biggest professional obstacle you’ve had to overcome? DB: I’d have to say the biggest obstacle was moving from a small town of 2,500 people where I grew up (Mattawa) to becoming a professional in the city of Ottawa. I had no network. One of the ways I addressed this was to form a breakfast group of people like me in the early stages of their careers. We really helped each other grow our businesses, and I’m still connected with those people today. OBJ: How did it feel to be nominated? DB: I’m very proud to be a nominee and a finalist. I have been attending this event for years and have marvelled at what a wonderful place it is to share the success of women in business. I think the quality of the finalists is superb, so I’m very proud and humbled to be in their company.

CONSTRUCTION PERMITS

TOP CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS Source: City of Ottawa construction permits, July 2015 to June 2016

The value of construction projects planned in Ottawa fell to a three-year low in 2015, despite the ongoing work on the city’s new light-rail transit line and the launch of several new large-scale mixed-use developments. The city issued construction permits for projects worth a collective $2.15 billion last year, according to municipal records. That’s down nearly 20 per cent from 2014, but still above the annual levels recorded between 2009 and 2012.

Are you ready? Mandatory fingerprinting for employees and contractors

In 2015, the Federal Government announced a new policy to standardize security clearance screening processes across all departments and agencies. Once the new standard is implemented, employees and contractors will be required to provide their fingerprints as part of a criminal background check, if deemed necessary by the functions of the position. Across Canada, thousands of businesses and organizations already include a certified criminal background check with fingerprints as a mandatory part of their hiring process.
