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. Each chapter closes with a mini-list, such as a look at some of the city’s most popular Twitter accounts (page 18), hottest real estate markets (page 30) and top tourism performers (page 60).

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) and the highest-paid executives in the private and public sectors (pages 78 to 81). 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. Mike Rogoff compiled the information appearing in the Who’s Who profile pages. The Book of Lists is produced by OBJ graphic designers Tanya Connolly-Holmes and 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.

n 2012, the cover story of OBJ’s Ottawa Technology magazine devoted several pages to a growing industry: startup incubators and accelerators. At the time, Carleton University was resurrecting its Lead to Win program, Wesley Clover was launching startups to fill holes in the product portfolios of companies such as Mitel and the newly rebranded Invest Ottawa was matching young entrepreneurs with experienced mentors. In hindsight, the emergence of these incubators and accelerators coincided with a startup boom that’s helping to drive the local economy some five years later – a shift that’s illustrated on the following pages. Several of those companies that were formed during that period, such as Fullscript, BriteSky and seoplus+, are now posting tripledigit revenue gains and top the list of Ottawa’s fastest-growing companies (page 40). Local tech employment, while volatile, is showing signs of sustaining the gains that started to appear in 2010-11 (page 32). And investors have returned to the capital, pouring more than $200 million annually into Ottawa tech firms for two years straight (page 32). Meanwhile, those upstart incubators and accelerators are now a permanent fixture in the city’s tech ecosystem. In recognition of the role these programs play in growing Ottawa’s economy, a ranking of the city’s largest incubators and accelerators appears on page 35 – one of the new features in this year’s edition of the Book of Lists.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest accounting firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page seven for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Mike Rogoff

Deanna Monaghan Office managing partner Ernst & Young LLP Deanna Monaghan began working at Ernst & Young (at the time under the name Clarkson Gordon) in 1983 after finishing her Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Ottawa. She has worked her entire career with the company in previous roles, which include serving on Ernst & Young’s audit staff, an audit manager and a partner before settling into her current role in 2004. As a managing partner, her key responsibilities include developing strategies to address administrative and personnel matters. She refuses to describe her job as challenging, instead looking for what can be rewarding about the businesses and people with whom she interacts. One such interaction led to a career highlight of hers, when she helped mentor a fellow

Carol Devenny Office managing partner PwC For Carol Devenny, serving as a managing partner at PwC is about being both a quarterback and a cheerleader. “My goal is to be challenged and learn something new everyday,” she says, noting that she is always being exposed to new experiences by being involved with different clients and facing digital changes in the auditing world. Her key responsibilities include meeting with clients and also mentoring her team in order to drive engagement. Ms. Devenny believes PwC’s experience in the technology

employee who would go on to become a partner and eventually took on a leadership role in the firm. “Helping develop her leadership skills was instrumental to helping her,” she says, “and that’s really fulfilling.” Throughout Ms. Monaghan’s long career at Ernst & Young, she has found many opportunities to aid those around her on both professional and personal levels. “It’s rewarding because you get to help companies achieve their objectives,” she says. Aside from striving to help her colleagues, she is also involved with the community. She has focused on being involved with healthcare and educational organizations by being a member of the board of governors and chair of the audit committee of the University of Ottawa and a board member of the Royal Ottawa Hospital Foundation.

and public sector industries helps set it apart from other accounting firms. As well, she notes the importance of PwC’s core values of excellence, teamwork and leadership – all qualities that she displays when acting as a mentor for younger employees in the firm. “I’m championing and encouraging the people on our side and I love watching that develop,” she says. “They are happy dealing with clients, and the clients are happy too.” Her favourite part of the job is being a part of her employees’ personal growth. “I’m so proud of what our people have done both in the firm and outside of it,” she says, noting that the employees that move on from PwC go on to have large impacts on the National Capital Region. Ms. Devenny is involved in the Ottawa community by serving on the Ottawa Community Foundation’s board of governors. She’s previously served as the treasurer for the CHEO Foundation.

Alan Tippett Director of U.S. tax advisory services Welch LLP Engaging clients and helping them with their ongoing business needs is at the heart of Welch LLP’s objectives. Alan Tippett plays a key role in making sure that happens. As a CPA, his key responsibilities include structuring business sales for his clients and advising as well as providing compliance to clients who do business in the United States. “You never know what’s going to come at you and we just try to alleviate as much stress for our clients as possible,” he says. Mr. Tippett has held his current position

for less than a year at Welch, but views the company as a good entrepreneurial space where the changing day-to-day duties make it a fun place of work. His career highlights include a particular case where he helped one of his clients settle an issue with the IRS which could have seen the client pay a couple of million dollars in penalties. With Mr. Tippett’s help, the client only had to pay a few thousand dollars. For him, the most rewarding part of the job is the satisfaction of the clients. “I do it to make sure my clients are happy and can sleep at night,” he says. His educational background is from the University of Indiana where he received his Bachelor of Business degree in accounting. Since his move to Ottawa in 1999, he has grown to love the city and gives back to the community through his involvement with the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa Charitable Foundation.

REAL ESTATE

SECTOR SNAPSHOT

T

he number of housing starts in Ottawa climbed 6.6 per cent in 2016 as homebuilders started to play “catch up” following a brief slowdown. “We experienced some fairly significant declines in housing starts, beginning in April 2014 with the Harper government’s efforts to reduce the budget deficit,” says John Herbert, executive director of the Greater Ottawa

Homebuilders Association. “If all goes well, by the end of 2018 we should be back up to our 10year average.” The local home resale market, meanwhile, continued to set record highs for monthly sales volumes and average prices. On the commercial side, Ottawa’s office and industrial vacancy rates have remained virtually unchanged since mid-2015.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest architectural firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 26 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Mike Rogoff

Ritchard Brisbin Principal BBB Architects Ottawa Inc. The way Ritchard Brisbin sees it, “Buildings have an obligation to explain themselves.” “When people are engaged intellectually and emotionally, they bond with a building and take ownership of it,” he explains. To Mr. Brisbin, structures convey stories in a similar manner to literature or film. For people to fully appreciate them, they must be intuitive and accessible. Mr. Brisbin has been in his current role as principal for BBB Architects Ottawa since 1988, when he helped found the company. Before BBB, he was a partner at Alakanti & Associates, a firm that’s since closed its doors. Mr. Brisbin credits the company for teaching him much about the business. His key responsibilities at BBB include presenting design concepts and projects to

Alex Leung Principal GRC Architects Alex Leung understands the impact high-quality architecture can have on Ottawa’s urban fabric. “We can create buildings that have a positive impact on the city for work and play,” he says. Mr. Leung has been in his current role at GRC Architects for six years. He came in to the company almost 30 years ago as a self-described “naïve and ignorant” graduate architect.

clients, planning committees and working through design concepts with his fellow architects. Mr. Brisbin believes that Ottawa is a city that is ready to embrace the 21st century with modern designs, but his job can offer challenges when faced with traditionalists who do not share his firm’s vision. “There’s a real reticence to move quickly,” he says, describing an instance when BBB’s modern design for the Shaw Centre was initially met with concern because of its proximity to the historic buildings on Parliament Hill. His career highlights include being able to work on a diverse number of projects across the city where new experience and strategies were required. “It’s never the same thing twice,” he says. He and BBB have designed buildings that are central to the city’s economic life such as the Ottawa International Airport, Shaw Centre and various light-rail stations.

“When you know less, you tend to think you can do more,” Mr. Leung quips. As principal, his key responsibilities include establishing good rapport with clients, conducting site reviews and creating designs that meet client mandates. His career highlights include being the local project manager for the Canadian War Museum and “putting his signature stamp” on the building. In terms of challenges, Mr. Leung thinks that balancing client expectations with budgetary realities is difficult. He believes GRC is special because they always try to fulfill client wish lists when possible. Mr. Leung is involved in the community through his work as a chairman on the Building Science Program at Algonquin College.

Will Prange Principal Architecture49 To Will Prange, Ottawa is on the cusp of transforming. “We’re at a tipping point where we’re becoming a large cosmopolitan city,” he says, looking ahead to how he and Architecture 49 will contribute to Ottawa’s architectural future. Mr. Prange comes from a family with a long history in the construction industry. Architecture

was the next “natural progression” in the business, especially after experiencing the hardships of construction work firsthand in his youth. “It’s much nicer to be on this side of the table,” he says, recalling stressful times digging ditches in the winter. He has been in his current position since 2014 when his previous firm PBK Architects amalgamated with five others to form Architecture49. For him, a particularly challenging moment but also a personal highlight came in the form of bringing the retailer Target to Canada. He was involved in producing 52 drawings for Target stores in 54 weeks. It was a large undertaking, to say the least, and was incredibly stressful at times. In hindsight, however, completing a project of that scale still brings him great satisfaction.

REAL ESTATE

Ottawa’s hottest neighbourhoods

H

omebuyers are flocking to rural areas in southwest Ottawa, driving up prices in communities such as Manotick, Munster and Richmond, according to data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board. Housing prices in these areas have all shot up by double digits over the past five years, joining popular central neighbourhoods such as Hintonburg and the Glebe to round out a list of Ottawa’s hottest real estate markets. While Carlsbad Springs and Blackburn Hamlet both made the list last year, no neighbourhood east of Bank Street (apart from the Glebe) cracked the top 15 in 2017. Here are 15 of the hottest housing markets in Ottawa, ranked by a home price index benchmarking tool that provides a more precise picture of real estate price trends in a given neighbourhood.

hile the $234.5 million in private equity and venture capital investments represents a 5.7 per cent decline from 2015, it’s still significantly above the preceding five-year average of $167.5 million. The largest sum was a series-B round that went to Turnstone Biologics. The startup is a leader in the emerging field of immunotherapy, in which viruses that attack malignant tumours are administered to patients. On the employment front, Ottawa-Gatineau’s tech sector hit a 23-month high in September 2016 with 51,800 people working in the industry. While the number continues to fluctuate, it’s since shed more than 5,000 jobs and continues to trend below early 2014 levels.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest life sciences firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 36 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Mike Rogoff

Paul Lem CEO and founder Spartan Bioscience When Paul Lem was growing up, he’d construct contraptions in his backyard and dream of becoming an inventor. This desire to create new things led him to the field of medicine. Mr. Lem’s educational background includes a medical degree from the University of Ottawa’s Medical School. He now works on the cutting edge of biomedical invention. “The holy grail for medicine is if you could have some sort of instant diagnosis machine,” he says. Spartan Bioscience focuses on understanding a patient’s DNA – something the company’s founders argue is key to understanding a patient’s overall medical needs. As CEO, Mr. Lem’s key responsibilities include overseeing orientation for new employees, ensuring feedback is given to employees on their

Richard Bonato President and CEO Braebon Medical Braebon Medical Corp. has come a long way from being just two guys and a cat in a basement. “At a certain point you have to pass the baton. You can’t keep doing it all yourself,” says president and CEO Richard Bonato. He’s been in his current role since he co-founded the sleeping aids and apparatuses company in 1998. Since it started, Braebon has grown considerably and now includes

performance and personally interviewing every potential full-time staff member to ensure that they are a good fit for the company (a method he borrowed from Google’s founders). Mr. Lem’s most recent career highlight is the creation of his company’s Spartan Cube device, a portable device that can deliver comprehensive DNA data in 30 minutes. Right now, his favourite part of his job is discovering new scenarios and markets in which the Cube can be used. “The number of applications for the device is amazing, there’s some I’d have never guessed,” he says. Currently, the device is being used to test for Legionella, a bacterium found in cooling towers that can make its way into office air conditioning systems and cause legionnaires’ disease. Outside of the office, Mr. Lem is involved in the Ottawa community through the organization Fresh Founders, which helps the city’s young entrepreneurs.

subsidiaries across multiple continents that he deals with every morning. Nowadays, his key responsibilities include developing relationships with subsidiaries around the world on behalf of Braebon and aiding in administrative and logistical problem solving. In terms of career highlights, Dr. Bonato recalls Braebon being the first company in the world to have an internally worn medical product receive approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This accomplishment, among others, contributes to one of Dr. Bonato’s favourite parts of the job: knowing that his work is improving peoples’ lives. “We’ve had couples that use our products wake up the next morning and say they feel 10 years younger.” He says that is why another name that Braebon goes by is the marital bliss company.

Heather MacIntosh Vice-president of sales and marketing STACS DNA For Heather MacIntosh, working in marketing still comes with a sense of discovery. “It’s about putting all the puzzle pieces together,” she says, describing how she addresses the needs of her clients in new markets. Ms. MacIntosh has been in her current role at STACS for five years. Her employer provides sample-tracking software to most of North America’s largest forensics DNA labs, including

the RCMP and the FBI. “It’s a pleasure to work for a company with such a stellar reputation,” she says. Her education background includes a commerce degree from Carleton University. She recalls being appointed as TMI Communications’ product manager and not knowing what the role entailed. “You had to figure out what your goal was and give it your best shot,” she says. And this wasn’t a unique experience; she’s had to learn new skills on the spot during her career. She alludes being able to adapt to these situations was a true key to her success. She enjoys the breadth of influence she has in her role, but her favourite part of the job is working with new customers. She enjoys knowing that the products she helps market are making a major difference in the lives of clients.

SECTOR SNAPSHOT

T

he number of overnight visitors to Ottawa is expected to climb six per cent in 2017 thanks in part to the many events and festivals celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary, according to the Conference Board of Canada. Some of the major draws include the spring Juno Awards, November’s Grey Cup and an outdoor NHL game between the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens. At the midway mark of the year, however, several local hoteliers said they were still waiting to see a Canada 150 boost in business outside the Canada Day long weekend.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest craft brewers in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 57 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Mike Rogoff Patrick “Paddy” Whelan Director of operations Lowertown Brewery Paddy Whelan has been running restaurants in Eastern Ontario for more than 15 years, but his informal start in the service industry came much earlier. “Our house was always built for entertaining,” he says. “We had four parties a year where I was either the coat check kid or the ice runner.” Mr. Whelan has been in his current role as the director of operations for 73 York for less than a year, managing both the Lowertown Brewery and the Sens House Sports Bar & Grill. His key responsibilities include managing the culture of both locations, planning entertainment bookings for the locations and

John vanDyke President Covered Bridge Brewing Starting Covered Bridge Brewing in 2013 gave John vanDyke the opportunity to be his own boss. Before deciding to open up his own brewery with his wife, he held a previous role as a scientific assessment officer for the federal government. “I like to do my own thing and decide what I want to brew and when I’m going to brew it,” he says. His key responsibilities include handling machinery logistics and brewing the beer itself. With all of these responsibilities, he says that the brewery business offers many more

even helping out the staff by waiting tables and cleaning during busy times of the year. Some of Mr. Whelan’s encounters with wellknown individuals are moments he considers to be career highlights. In particular, while in his previous role as the owner of the Murray Street Kitchen, he shut it down for one evening to host the Tragically Hip – whom he counts as friends – on their last stop in Ottawa. “Just to see how relaxed they were because of the service we put on is what I love,” he said, adding that the band and crew were so impressed by the service that they invited some of the restaurant staff to their show the next night. Despite the fact that many of Lowertown’s employees are students and may only be with the company for a short period of time, he always challenges himself to make an impact on their lives while they are there to help them gain skills they can take with them for the rest of their careers.

challenges than his past position. “With that job you go in nine to five,” he says. “With this you’re always working.” Mr. vanDyke’s heavy workload is coupled with his passion for brewing the best beer possible and satisfying his customers. A career highlight for him is the praise he receives from his customers. “Every time someone comes in and tells me how much they like my beer, I love it.” Last year, Covered Bridge received an award at the Canadian Brewing Awards, taking home a gold medal for its barrel aged barley wine. Mr. vanDyke is involved in the community through his brewery. Every year he brews a beer that helps raise money for a dragon boat festival team called Chinatown Showboat. He also raises money for the Stittsville Food Bank.

Jeremy Steeves Co-owner and manager Perth Brewery Jeremy Steeves has spent much of his life close to the family business of the Perth Brewery and believes it was a natural fit when he took on a management role. Mr. Steeves attended the sommelier program at Algonquin in 2005 and has incorporated the skills he acquired into the brewing process. In his current role, his responsibilities include managing staff and communicating with licensee accounts that sell their products. Having worked at the brewery since high school, Mr. Steeves has previously taken on almost every role imaginable in the brewing process.

Now, he is in charge of organizing events, managing sales and maintaining the brewery from a technical standpoint. A self-described “adventure seeker,” he believes that the position he holds now is thrilling and can offer unique challenges. “When we make big decisions about expansions and purchasing, it can be unnerving but it’s supported by tremendous reward and fulfillment,” he says, noting that the business of brewing craft beer is enjoying success and increased interest at the moment. An example of this success is the award that Mr. Steeves and the Perth Brewery received in 2014 as the People’s Choice for Favourite Brewery at the Ottawa Craft Beer Festival.

TOURISM Older and more adventurous families visited the farm at night. After the sun goes down, Saunders turns into a creepy, barren place populated by ghosts, goblins and monsters of all kinds.

RBC Bluesfest Event of the year (festival) The Ottawa River acts as the majestic backdrop to one of North America’s most eclectic music festivals. Every July nearly 300,000 music lovers descend upon LeBreton Flats on the grounds of the Canadian War Museum for RBC Bluesfest. Five stages sit around the bank of the river and inside the museum, creating one of the most unique and beautiful settings to witness some of the world’s biggest and most innovative artists during Bluesfest’s two-week reign.

New company of the year One of Ottawa’s newest hotels features some 200 guest rooms, a ground floor restaurant and bar, as well as a stunning rooftop lounge that offers sweeping views of the Ottawa cityscape. Each floor of the 16-storey hotel reflects the history and character of a Canadian province or territory with artwork curated by the Canadian Council Art Bank. The new hotel has generated a significant buzz among travel writers, bloggers and locals alike while helping to advance Ottawa’s evolving reputation as a modern and sophisticated city.

Diefenbunker and Escape Manor Tourism partnership of the year Canada’s Cold War museum and Ottawa’s premier escape room company worked together to launch the world’s largest escape room. Staying true to the Diefenbunker’s historic roots, this elaborate endeavor is themed around espionage: You are on the final guided tour of the day, when you and your friends duck into a room and hide so that you can spend a night at the museum. You soon discover that it is

not a museum at all. It is actually a cover for an enemy spy organization. You overhear some people talking behind closed doors of an imminent attack scheduled for tonight! You must escape! But first, you must find the communications room, stop the launch sequence and phone-in the Red Alert transmission to the outside world before it is too late!

Canada Agriculture and Food Museum – Baconpalooza Food and drink experience of the year A celebration of all things bacon, Baconpalooza at the Farm features food trucks, beer and cocktail tents, smoking and barbeque demonstrations, celebrity chefs and live entertainment.

Saunders Farm – Haunting Season Event of the year (themed celebration or exhibition) A family tradition for countless guests, Saunders Farm’s fall attraction entertains scores of younger children with pumpkin patch hayrides, wagon rides, fairy gardens, themed mazes and puppet shows. New last year was a vintage 1930s-era carnival with a 1917 carousel, a 1930 Ferris wheel and more.

Last year, a tour group visiting the National Capital Region was planning a day of sightseeing that included a stop at the Mackenzie King Estate. It’s a destination visited by thousands of tourists and residents annually without a hitch. But on this particular day, the tour group hit a major roadblock trying to visit the former country estate of Canada’s 10th and longest-serving prime minister: All the roads in Gatineau Park were 150 Slater St. closed. In a panic, tour organizers began looking for alternate attractions and called Nathalie Coutou, who runs the Khewa Native Art Boutique in Wakefield. Even though the gallery was closed, Ms. Coutou greeted the group at 10 a.m., set up a teepee just for the group and entertained them with a traditional song of welcome, a smudging ceremony as well as the story of the indigenous peoples of the area before inviting everyone back into the gallery. In recognition of her efforts, Ms. Coutou was named Ottawa Tourism’s 2016 Star of the City at a ceremony late last year. The annual awards recognize customer service excellence in Ottawa-Gatineau’s tourism and hospitality industry.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest financial planning firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 70 for a complete list of the sector’s largest companies in the region. Profiles by Mike Rogoff Michael Prittie Portfolio manager and senior financial advisor Mandeville Private

To Michael Prittie, the relationship with his clients is one of mutual respect and trust. “Our role is to educate them on what they own,” he says, adding that he also helps keep his clients’ emotions in check when times look tough. As a portfolio manager, his key responsibilities include overseeing client accounts, estate planning with clients, and managing the overall operations of Mandeville’s Ottawa branch. He has held other roles in the company as well, such as being the chair of Mandeville’s advisory council and vice-

Richard Herman Director of wealth management and portfolio manager Richardson GMP

“The idea of working with people in unique circumstances appealed to me,” says Richard Herman when describing why he went into financial planning. Mr. Herman has been in his current role as a portfolio manager at Richardson GMP since 2016. “This is a relationship business,” he says.

president of insurance. Mr. Prittie enjoys his work at Mandeville because of the way the company continues to innovate in the field of financial planning. “We have access to world-class, highquality private equity opportunities,” he says. He enjoys the entrepreneurial environment of Mandeville and that he and the whole team are always thinking of new ways to help their clients. “A favourite activity is researching investment ideas and formulating proven plans to grow clients’ wealth. That may sound boring, but I love what I do,” he says. In terms of community involvement, Mr. Prittie has served as a member of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s President’s Council.

“There’s a great deal of satisfaction when dealing with clients that have stuck with you since the beginning.” His key responsibilities include reviewing client portfolios, managing his team’s morale and keeping up to date with economic affairs that may affect his clients. Since the nature of the job involves creating strong bonds with his clients, he thinks the most challenging part of the job is managing client expectations. For him, his longevity in the business has helped him gather a wealth of knowledge and friends. “Anybody that has been in the industry for as many years as I have finds that the majority of clients become personal friends,” he says. For Mr. Herman, when his clients celebrate a milestone, he is part of it too.

John Landry Retirement and estate planner John D. Landry Financial and Quadrus Investments

John Landry was promised that if he devoted a year to learning about and selling life insurance, he would grow to love it. He began his journey in financial planning when he accepted training from Manulife Financial in the early 1980s. Mr. Landry has been in his current role since 1989 when he started his own

practice. The majority of Mr. Landry’s clients consist of retirees and Baby Boomers between the ages of 60 and 70. “We try to go that extra mile,” he says, adding he makes trips out to clients who cannot physically make it into his office. He understands that discussing certain products such as disability plans can be uncomfortable at times, but he takes solace in the fact that the options he provides better his clients’ lives.

My proudest accomplishment has been in creating an industry that’s merged health care with construction, and is improving accessibility for some of Ottawa’s most vulnerable populations. From helping seniors stay independent at home to opening up wheelchair access in storefronts or restaurants, we help people fully participate in our homes, workplaces and neighbourhoods. As a female in a male-dominated career, I’ve had to deal with a lot of misogynistic points of views. Doubts from potential clientele or the general public due to my age and gender were draining and brought down my confidence. However, I overcame that with the help of my mother, employees and incredible clients.

Taking our business into a bigger city, Toronto, where there is a lot more competition was a huge risk and is one of my proudest business achievements. In recent months, we have seen our highest membership sales to date and some of our busiest classes.

Rebuilding and growing WGroup to the successful and entrepreneurial practice it is today has been one of my proudest achievements. I redesigned our service offering, changed our business model, rebranded the company and rebuilt our team.

My proudest business accomplishment is receiving the 2016 Best Ottawa Business Award for performance in philanthropy. This reflected our ongoing work with SchoolBOX, to whom we donate 10 cents of every pound of coffee sold. We’ve now provided annual school supplies to thousands of kids and built two classrooms for coffee farming communities in Nicaragua. It’s important to take the time for others. When someone asks for your time, it’s usually because they feel you have a contribution to make. We all need advice, guidance and coaching throughout our careers.

I’ve been in the transportation industry for more than 20 years. In this male-dominated industry, I faced lower wages than my male counterparts, sexual harassment and difficulty being taken seriously. I took it all in stride, and with a ton of backbone and sense of humour, I proved that my innovation and savvy risk-taking would deliver results.

Being invited into equity partnership is an honour that I cannot explain with words. I have managed to balance my life between the love for my family, the love I have for being a lawyer and my commitment to giving back to my community.

My proudest business achievement is building our new retreat and spa at Strathmere. After 35 years in business specializing in group functions (weddings, meetings and events), we added a 6,000-square-foot retreat with spa services, daily yoga, a “field-to-plate” licensed cafe, outdoor hot tubs, fire pit and nature trails.

My greatest inspiration comes from involvement with an initiative called Peace Camp Canada. A young, inspirational Ashbury student, Michelle Divon, invited me as a content matter expert on leadership to work with 30 youth from Israel and Palestine who travelled to Ottawa for a 10-day initiative focused on the pursuit of peace.

The advice that’s probably made the biggest impact on my career for many years was “just show up.” (Admittedly from The Donald when he was a keynote speaker at the Ottawa Business Summit a long time ago.) I played that in my head when I would feel anxious about walking into a new situation, a new room and a new opportunity.

I’m fiercely proud of the team I’ve assembled: 14 dynamic, creative and dedicated individuals who blow my mind with never-ending energy and drive to think big and do great work. We’ve been working our guts out and I couldn’t be more proud of the award-winning work we’re creating together.

CONSTRUCTION PERMITS

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

After a lull in 2015, construction activity in the nation’s capital rebounded in 2016 as Ottawa’s homebuilding industry picked up steam with several new condo and rental apartment projects. The city issued construction permits for projects worth a collective $2.61 billion in 2016, according to municipal records. That’s up 22 per cent from 2015 and nearly 18 per cent above the $2.22 billion annual average over the previous five years. The outlook for 2017 looks even more positive, with the value of construction permits awarded during the first six months of the year trending above levels recorded during the same time period in 2016. That’s been driven in large part by the ongoing renovations to the Department of National Defence’s Carling Campus, still known to many residents as the former Ottawa home of Nortel Networks. “We have gone through some lean years with the federal government, since they are the drivers of big jobs, but the (outlook for the construction sector) looks generally favourable,” says John DeVries, the president and general manager of the Ottawa Construction Association. “Everything is being stimulated. And that bodes well for the job outlook.” The top building projects by value approved between July 2016 and June 2017 are: Holiday Inn (235 King Edward Ave.) Construction of a nine-storey hotel with a three-level parking garage Contractor: Unknown $54,368,921
