' EDITOR S NOTE

Ottawa in its prime

T

here are countless ways of measuring Ottawa’s economic performance. GDP growth, unemployment rates and real estate sales are useful citywide metrics. Figures such as hotel occupancy and the amount of venture capital invested in local firms, meanwhile, provide insights into specific business sectors. By many of these measurements – which you’ll find sprinkled through this edition of the Book of Lists – Ottawa’s economy is firing on all cylinders. The region’s unemployment rate is hovering at its lowest level in a generation and spent several months in mid-2018 at a miniscule 4.4 per cent. At the same time, the number of households earning more than $100,000 has jumped by more than 40,000 over the past two years. Nearly one in two local households now pulls in six figures annually. Demographically, Ottawa is in its prime. Residents between the ages of 25 and 29 – those who are typically in the early stage of their careers and poised to start scaling the corporate ladder while making large purchases such as homes and cars – make up the largest age cohort. Ottawa is also a highly educated city, with more than two-thirds of residents holding a post-secondary degree or diploma (page two). Against this backdrop, many of the city’s business sectors are thriving. Fresh off the Canada 150 celebrations in 2017, Ottawa’s tourism is attracting record numbers of visitors (page 42). The city’s residential real estate market, meanwhile, is reaching new heights (page 22), while developers race to construct new retirement residences across the city (page 76) to meet the growing demand from Baby Boomers entering their golden years. There are, however, some persistent and serious challenges. Private equity and venture capital investment levels (page 32) have remained largely stagnant in recent years. And women remain woefully underrepresented among the city’s highest-paid corporate executives (page 78). These are just a few of the stories contained in The Book of Lists, which paints a comprehensive picture of Ottawa’s business community. On the following pages, readers will find detailed facts and figures on more than 600 companies, organized into dozens of economic sectors. Even in the age of Google, there’s no other resource that contains as much clearly organized information about the companies doing business 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. Each chapter closes with a mini-list, such as a look at some of the city’s most popular Instagram 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 (pages 74 and 75), the biggest construction projects (pages 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. Ottawa’s economy is constantly evolving, and the Book of Lists reflects those changes. This year’s edition contains new lists focused on emerging industries, such as coworking spaces (page 23), firms developing autonomous vehicle technology (page 40) and licensed cannabis growers (page 68).

BUSINESS SERVICES

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest advertising agencies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page nine for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Rosa Saba.

Gordon McMillan CEO and chief creative officer, McMillan Though Gordon McMillan spent his childhood moving around, he found a home for his family and his business in Ottawa, where he started his agency 22 years ago. McMillan says he got used to things changing, which is an industry standard, especially for firms like his that focus on tech companies. He calls himself an “entrepreneur by heart,” with an interest in technology that has established his firm internationally. In fact, most of the firm’s clients are in the U.S. or elsewhere abroad, something McMillan says speaks to the importance of focus and specialization in an industry as competitive as marketing. “They get that we understand what we do and how to market to their audience, and they don’t care where we’re from,” he says, adding that they stumbled into technology as a focus out of pure personal interest. “We’re just nerds by nature,” he says. “We’d rather sell cloud services than cologne.” However, despite the firm’s international client base, McMillan has no plans to leave Ottawa. The company takes pride in giving back to the city through a program called Betterful, where they offer free branding and marketing services to a company or organization. Most recently, they re-branded Shepherds of Good Hope.

Al Albania

President, Acart Communications

As a young Italian immigrant growing up in Ottawa, Al Albania says he was always interested in fine arts. Though he had never planned on getting into marketing, a friend working for a printing press asked Albania for some help on a project, and as he puts it: “That was the beginning of the end.” Several years later, Acart Communications began as a small outfit in Albania’s basement in 1976. A big government contract marked a shift upward for the firm, which is now one of Ottawa’s largest advertising and marketing companies. Albania says the key to success for Acart has been an ability to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new trends and technology. Before computers were anywhere close to widespread, he had a few in his office so his employees could learn to use them. When Canada Post approached the firm looking for a website in 1992, Albania said yes – then set about finding out how to build one. Albania says he’s still the first in the office in the morning and the last to leave. Decades into his advertising and marketing career, he still loves what he does and is constantly learning – and still maintains his love of fine arts through painting. Now, social media is the latest tool in marketing, but that doesn’t faze Albania. “Like any other new tool, this is a different type of pencil,” he says. “We adopted social media as quickly as anybody else in the market … it’s totally changed the game.”

Timothy Jones

President and creative director, Banfield

When Timothy Jones joined marketing agency Banfield 16 years ago as a designer, he felt immediately aligned with the values of the company and its president at the time, Nancy Webb. Now, as the new president of Banfield, he says he feels those values are the reason he has stayed with the company. “(Webb) did a really great job at creating a company culture that we all take pride in,” says Jones. From the beginning of his time at Banfield, he was always moving around, talking to people and collaborating. He says the relationships he’s built are what made his eventual transition to creative director and president an easy, natural one. Another aspect of the company culture is the workplace itself. The agency is located in an old house, and Jones says arriving at work each morning feels like home. It also fosters a sense of community and collaboration within Banfield that he hopes to continue upholding as president. “The house … is very much a part of the Banfield family,” he says.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest coworking spaces in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 23 for a complete list of the sector’s largest facilities in the region. Profiles by Rosa Saba.

Katie Miller Director, ImpactHub Edmonton-born Katie Miller has been with ImpactHub ever since its founding in 2012. First a volunteer, and then the space’s first employee, she became the director two years ago. “I fell in love with the organization,” Miller says. ImpactHub offers not only coworking spaces, but also incubation programs for early stage social enterprises. The organization tripled their space a year ago and are already “feeling a bit full,” says Miller. ImpactHub focuses on businesses that share social values, especially when it comes to sustainable development. “We see ourselves playing a role in enabling our community to move the agenda forward on the United Nations’ sustainable development goals,” says Miller. The spirit of coworking is alive and well with ImpactHub, which works with other Ottawa organizations such as Invest Ottawa to help companies gain awareness of their social impact and gain access to a network of other businesses with similar goals. “I think it’s positive that we work in tandem to provide new entrepreneurs with access to everything as well as supporting them in navigating all the resources that are in our city,” says Miller, who is organizing more programming for the fall focused around the concept of sustainable, “smart” cities.

Emile Salem Founder, CollabSpace When business coach and mentor Emile Salem founded CollabSpace, his plans were modest: a small coworking space with room for 10 to 12 members, whose membership fees would include mentorship and business coaching services. After years of starting companies and helping them on the path to success – 44 companies in all – Salem was ready to let go of the management side and focus on part-time mentorship and coaching. However, when he held his first networking event to gauge interest in the space, 46 people showed up, including his now-business partner, Blair Kilrea. That number grew every month, and it became clear CollabSpace needed, well, more space. “There was a huge need that nobody was filling,” says Salem, explaining that many coworking spaces were geared toward either tech startups looking for incubators, or social enterprises. He wanted to serve everyone in between, especially those who wanted to work outside the downtown core. Now, CollabSpace has more than 250 members between two locations, with plans for a bigger one in the east end within a couple of years. Salem says he thinks the space’s success has been due to its no-exceptions approach to coworking, as well as the mentorship-included membership model and overall support that CollabSpace provides. “(It’s) a place where people come to do business,” he says. People come to CollabSpace for a variety of reasons, but “it’s mostly for the community.”

Sheri Chiprout Director, Makerspace North Since Sheri Chiprout joined Makerspace North in 2015, she’s seen the coworking space become a hub for makers and entrepreneurs. The concept behind Makerspace is simple, says Chiprout: “We offer space.” Unlike many coworking spaces, which offer boardrooms, desks, and office services, Makerspace is focused on people making tangible things, from longboards to videos. Chiprout’s passion for Ottawa’s entrepreneurs is evident in her voice. She has learned a lot since joining Makerspace, especially when it comes to finding a system that can manage a community of creative people. “That was a huge challenge, and I learned through trial and error,” she says. Less than a year after joining Makerspace as an event manager, Chiprout became the director, holding weekly meetups and a wide range of events in an effort to support and grow Ottawa’s maker community. “Ottawa benefits from having a lot of entrepreneurial energy within the city, and coworking spaces allow for people to have that,” she says of the growth of coworking in the city. “We’ve seen businesses grow by virtue of having the space as well as the maker community as a whole.” Chiprout says it’s “bittersweet” when businesses outgrow coworking and move on to their own commercial spaces. “Your heart hurts a little … We love them so much but at the same time they’re doing great things,” she says. “They moved on and they grew by virtue of being here.”

SECTOR SNAPSHOT

Earlier in the decade, the number of housing starts was weighed down by the threat of federal government cutbacks, which caused some residents to hold off on major purchases. Now, with a more stable outlook, home builders continue to play catch up. Housing starts in 2017 reached 7,457 properties, according to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp., up 41 per

The residential resale market, meanwhile, continued to reach new heights, both in terms of the number of properties changing hands and average prices. On the commercial side, Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and industrial leasing markets showed signs of tightening in 2017-18.

REAL ESTATE

Ottawa’s hottest neighbourhoods H

omebuyers’ interest in rural properties continues to increase, driving up prices in areas such as the Rideau Township, Manotick and North Gower closer to levels traditionally seen in popular central neighbourhoods such as the Glebe and Westboro. Housing prices in those rural FITZROY neighbourhoods have risen by up to 31 per cent in the past five years, according to data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board. It’s part of a wider trend of rapidly rising home prices in Canada’s capital. According to data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board, prices in 21 out of 59 neighbourhoods have risen by more than 20 per cent over the last five years. Here are 15 of the hottest neighbourhoods in Ottawa, ranked by the real estate board’s home price index benchmark.

nvestors poured more than $170 million into local tech firms in 2017 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the lowest level in the last three years, according to data compiled by Thomson Reuters. While the level of venture capital and private equity being invested into Ottawa-Gatineau companies may have been down by more than 26 per cent year-over-year, the 2017 total was roughly on par with the average annual sum over the past seven years. The largest investment in 2017 was a $40-million round raised by Assent Compliance, a software firm that helps enterprise customers comply with government regulations. On the employment front, tech employment has been relatively stable in Ottawa-Gatineau over the past year, fluctuating between 45,000 and 50,000 employees, according to Statistics Canada.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest defence and security companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 37 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Rosa Saba.

Françoise Gagnon CEO, ADGA Group Prior to taking the helm at ADGA, Françoise Gagnon had worked in government relations for her entire career, and was even beginning to talk about retirement with her husband, John Jarvis. Neither of them were in the defence and security industry, but after talking it over, Gagnon and Jarvis both decided to take the leap. “I felt a sense of duty to carry on the legacy and carry the company forward,” says Gagnon, adding that though “it seemed daunting at first,” she found that many of the management and leadership skills she had gained during her first career were just as relevant in her new position. When it came to defence and security knowledge, Gagnon learned quickly by consulting with experts in the field and working long hours. “It was really a matter of surrounding myself with the right people, asking the right questions and doing a lot of reading,” she says. “Like anything else, if you’re committed to it, and you put the time and effort into it … you do get to know the business incredibly well.” Now, almost five years into her position at ADGA, Gagnon is nowhere near retirement. She has plans for ADGA, including a goal of reaching gender parity at the executive level in an industry that she says is still heavily male-dominated. She’s formed a group within her company in the hopes of providing support for women looking to climb the corporate ladder. Externally, ADGA offers an equal number of scholarships to men and women. As a woman in an executive role, she hopes other women will see executive leadership as a more attainable goal. “You can’t be what you can’t see,” says Gagnon.

David Ibbetson Vice-president, General Dynamics Canada After working with General Dynamics for more than 20 years, David Ibbetson has seen many big projects come to fruition. Many of those initiatives were up to a decade or more in the making, he says, and seeing them successfully launched gives him a sense of pride in the work his company does. In his various roles with the company, Ibbetson says his focus has primarily been on the people he hires and oversees. He says it’s about striking the balance between technical expertise and creativity – something not always associated with engineering, but which he says is important for fostering innovation and growth. He looks for people with the same passion he has in making large, complicated projects succeed, and who find the completion of those projects as rewarding as he does. Ibbetson is also proud of the workplace culture he fosters at General Dynamics, an environment he says promotes and supports imagination in a constantly changing industry. “We work hard to create an environment where our employees can find creative solutions to obstacles,” Ibbetson said. “Imagination, coupled with technical expertise, gives our customers worldwide the very best that Ottawa – and Canada – has to offer.”

Greg Wetmore Vice-president of product development, Entrust Datacard When Greg Wetmore accepted a job at Entrust as an entry-level software developer in 2000, he joined because the firm’s product – the first commercial public key infrastructure (PKI) technology – was unique in the world of tech. Now, as the vice-president of product development at Entrust Datacard, Wetmore has been with the company through several periods of change and growth. He attributes the company’s survival of the tech bust, during which he was a development manager, to a few things. Most important is the product itself – the reason he joined the company in the first place. PKI technology has become increasingly relevant with the rise of e-commerce, and Wetmore says the importance of expertise in that field was recognized by the private equity firm that took Entrust private in 2008, and later by Datacard, which acquired the company in 2014. “There’s an element of survival story there, but there’s also an element of building meaningful products that are delivered to companies all over the world,” says Wetmore. The company’s core technology is used around the globe daily in travel, e-commerce and online banking. Wetmore says the rewarding nature of Entrust Datacard’s work is what kept him with the company and made him pursue his climb from software developer to vice-president. “Any engineer really wants to build products or build solutions that are used and that matter,” he says. “Being able to travel securely, being able to buy securely … that’s the fabric of our lives today.”

TOURISM

SECTOR SNAPSHOT A

s the centre of celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation in 2017, Ottawa saw an 8.8 per cent increase in visitors over 2016, according to Ottawa Tourism. The vast majority of visitors to Ottawa are fellow Canadians. The U.S. accounts for almost 500,000 visits, and all zother countries combined account for over 550,000 visits. Visitation from China has increased throughout Canada, including Ottawa, but the U.K. remains this city’s largest overseas source of visitors, thanks in part to a year-round direct flight from London’s Heathrow Airport. Ottawa has seen large increases in the number of visitors from Mexico, which has been supported by changes to the visa process.

TOURISM

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest meetings and convention venues in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 53 for a complete list of the sector’s largest spaces in the region. Profiles by Rosa Saba.

Nina Kressler CEO, Shaw Centre When Nina Kressler talks about her career trajectory, there’s a clear pattern: the Halifax-born CEO of Ottawa’s Shaw Centre doesn’t like to get too comfortable. In Nova Scotia, Kressler was the vice-president of sales and marketing for the World Trade and Convention Centre. When the opportunity to work in Toronto for the Congress Centre opened up, she took the leap. “I thought if I didn’t get a little bit out of my comfort zone … then I wouldn’t know what else is out there,” says Kressler. However, soon after that she moved again, this time to Ottawa for the Shaw Centre, first as the general manager and now as the president and CEO. “I think it was a natural next step for me,” says Kressler. At that time, the Shaw Centre needed a strong focus on sales and marketing, something she had experience in. She developed the centre’s sales team with a focus on in-person relationships, and credits the centre’s growth and success in part to that tactic. Kressler sees Ottawa as a “very welcoming city,” and no more so than in 2017, which saw Canada 150 celebrations filling the nation’s capital all year round. The Shaw Centre hosted 45 conventions that were attended by delegates who travelled from further than ever before, and she says her staff thrived on the activity. “We finished one and then we’d roll right into the next one,” she says. “It was extremely exciting.” However, 2018 shows no sign of slowing down. Kressler says 2017 served as a marketing opportunity for Ottawa, which she sees becoming one of the top tourist destinations in Canada. “I’m just looking forward to the momentum continuing,” she says. “For us, the party’s just getting started.”

Anu Sohal Manager, Infinity Convention Centre The Sohal family came to Ottawa in 2008, and has been busy ever since establishing several hotels near the airport and beyond. The Infinity Convention Centre marks their first foray into something a bit different: a designated event space outside the downtown core. Anu Sohal, the manager of Infinity, highlights the fact that ten years and several properties later, the Sohals still operate as a family business. It’s that same community attitude that she says has made Infinity successful since it opened in late 2016. “People make the venue what it is,” she says, describing how every aspect of the centre – from the sales staff to the chef to the state-of-the-art kitchen – was selected to contribute to a seamless, high-end event experience. The biggest difference from the hotel business that she’s noted so far has been the importance placed on an elevated dining experience. “We wanted to set the standard for banquet food … and that’s a very tough thing to accomplish,” she says, adding that as booking windows for events have shortened over the years, the staff are always prepared for last-minute events and willing to do “whatever it takes” to make those events a success. Sohal says the size of the convention centre means it’s not competition for larger centres such as the EY Centre, but rather complements those businesses and has even worked “hand-in-hand” with them on multiple occasions to support conventions and other events. “We really believe in being a part of the community and working together,” she says.

Alain Miroux General manager, Casino Lac-Leamy Alain Miroux has been in the hotel and restaurant business for as long as he’s been working, but says he didn’t consider the industry’s full potential until a well-timed job offer showed him that not only did he have the knack with people that hospitality requires, but he also had a talent for management. “It’s something I think I’ve always had in my blood,” says Montreal-born Miroux, who joined the Casino Lac-Leamy Complex in 2005 as general manager of the Hilton and took over the position of general manager of the casino and hotel in 2013. He says it’s a rewarding position, not just when it comes to his guests, but also the people with whom he works. The hospitality industry is home to a lot of entry-level positions, says Miroux, and he loves seeing people develop within a few years to management positions. “It’s quite rewarding to see that you may have had an impact,” he says. “I’ve always loved making people happy.” Miroux is also happy to see Gatineau and Ottawa tourism officials working more closely with each other to develop a more integrated National Capital Region. He considers Lac-Leamy a “downtown getaway” and says 2017 was one of the casino’s best years yet, as tourists flocking to the nation’s capital saw Lac-Leamy as one of the region’s go-to entertainment destinations.

Right, top and middle: The Scotiabank NHL100 Classic Weekend and the 105th Grey Cup Festival tied for top honours in the one-time Event of the Year category. Right, bottom: Inflatable polar bears roamed Ottawa to promote a new Canadian Museum of Nature exhibition.

Ottawa’s top performers

A selection of recipients from the most recent Ottawa Tourism awards Tim Hortons Ottawa Ice Dragon Boat Festival New Company of the Year This spin-off from the popular summer Dragon Boat Festival saw teams using ice picks to propel boats with skate-like blades, racing across Dow’s Lake. It was the first-ever ice dragon boat festival in North America, and was an instant hit in Ottawa. The second-annual 2018 festival had 100 spots, up from the 60 that sold out in minutes in 2017.

Polar Bears by Canadian Museum of Nature Social media/Marketing initiative of the year Eight larger-than-life inflatable polar bears walked the streets of downtown Ottawa in July 2017 to draw attention to the Polar Bears Campaign. The initiative was aimed at promoting the Canadian Museum of Nature’s new permanent Canada Goose Arctic Gallery. The multimedia gallery was developed in partnership with the National Film Board.

Music & Beyond Event of the Year (annual) The yearly classical music and arts festival began in 2010 and has grown every year since,

60

with around 75 concerts and events across Ottawa in both 2017 and 2018. Highlights of the 2017 season included boundary-pushing chamber group Kronos Quartet, violinist Sarah Chang and pianist Garrick Ohlsson. The 2018 season saw renowned English composer John Rutter conduct his own work performed by several Ottawa groups including Thirteen Strings and the Capital Chamber Choir.

Tie: Scotiabank NHL100 Classic Weekend by Ottawa Senators AND 105th Grey Cup Festival by Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group Event of the Year (one time) The Ottawa Senators played the Montreal Canadiens at the Scotiabank NHL100 Classic Weekend in December 2017, ending a year of centennial celebrations. The Senators won 3-0 in the outdoor game, played at TD Place. The 105th Grey Cup Festival by Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group ran for three days in November 2017, with a roster of events that included an all-Canadian music lineup. The game saw the Calgary Stampeders face the Toronto Argos, with the Argos narrowly winning the cup 27-24.

Star of the City Sulin Quant Anastas Lord Elgin Hotel The Lord Elgin’s Sulin Quant Anastas was named the 2017 Star of the City after her actions during a medical emergency helped save a guest’s life. After responding to a call from a concerned tour guide, Anastas checked on a guest to find her ill and in pain. The daughter of a doctor, Anastas immediately saw that something was wrong and got the woman into an ambulance. The guest only spoke Spanish, and so Anastas was also translating between her and the paramedics during the entire ordeal, which ended with emergency surgery for a perforated appendix. The 22nd annual Stars of the City awards saw 1,249 nominations from 82 businesses across Ottawa, with 28 finalists and eight winners in different categories. The awards recognize excellence in customer service in the city’s tourism and hospitality industry.

SECTOR SNAPSHOT B

usiness confidence is a key driver of economic growth. Company owners and managers who feel optimistic are more likely to expand their business, hire new staff and make investments that benefit the wider economy. Locally, business confidence remains positive, despite a modest decline from 2017. The Ottawa business confidence index fell to its lowest level in three years, but remains higher than the levels recorded between 2013 and 2015. “The last two years have been quite positive. This is just a softening a little bit,” says David Coletto, the CEO of Abacus Data. The local firm compiled and analyzed the research in the Ottawa Business Growth Survey. This year’s decline was largely driven by weakening confidence in the retail and hospitality sectors that failed to offset a sharp increase among tech firms. Coletto says the softness in retail and hospitality can be explained in part by increases in minimum wage. The business confidence index is a composite calculation based on the responses to several of the questions contained on the following pages. The scale ranges from zero to 200, with a score of 100 representing a neutral position. A score higher than 100 is positive, while a score lower than 100 is negative.

AWARDS, ORGANIZATIONS & OTHER BUSINESS SECTORS

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the largest cannabis growers in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 68 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Rosa Saba.

Bruce Linton CEO, Canopy Growth As the CEO of one of Canada’s largest cannabis production company, Bruce Linton points to lessons learned from his farming family as key to Canopy Growth’s success. For one, the veteran executive says he learned about teamwork from a young age. “I think when you grow up on a farm there’s a lot more necessity and expectation of collaboration,” says Linton. “Collectively, you succeed.” He was also aware of pricing, labour and the importance of efficiency, and is constantly reminding his team to be aware of what is within their control. “We will never control the price,” he says. “We have to focus on quality and cost.” This often means spending more up-front to keep business sustainable in the long run, says Linton, giving as an example many of Canopy Growth’s policies, such as carbon footprint reduction. On the outside, these are environmentally responsible, but they’re also just plain practical from a long-term business perspective, he says. It’s that investment in initial infrastructure that he thinks will keep Canopy Growth on its upward path, especially with the addition of the legal recreational cannabis market in October 2018. “You can invest in a company, but you can only make money on a business,” says Linton.

Terry Lake Vice-president of corporate social responsibility, HEXO (Hydropothecary) HEXO’s Terry Lake followed the debate in Parliament over cannabis legalization very closely. The firm’s vice-president of corporate social responsibility may have been more familiar with the processings with most; he comes to the job as a former British Columbia health minister. Lake says his background in government makes him comfortable dealing with regulations and policy. “In a highly regulated industry like ours, it's always advantageous to have people that are familiar with the legislation,” he says. “It makes it easier for us to do the right thing.” In preparation for legalization, HEXO (formerly Hydropothecary) is scaling up in a big way, building greenhouses and ramping up production – the Gatineau-based producer will go from 45,000 square feet of growing space to 1.3 million by early 2019. To fund the expansion, the firm closed a massive $150-million funding round in January 2018. “We’re really expanding, and the economic impact of our growth thanks to this change in public policy has been very positive,” says Lake. He also hopes that Hydropothecary can contribute to research at institutions such as the University of Ottawa, contributing to the city’s development in more ways than one. “It goes along with the high-tech niche that the Ottawa-Gatineau area has,” he says. “We get to develop things that will actually be first of a kind.”

James Mackenzie CEO, NordikLeaf For NordikLeaf CEO James Mackenzie, the cannabis industry was a logical next step after his experience in tech, especially data centres. The former chief financial officer of RockGarden Medicinals (now Kolab Project) and serial entrepreneur says that regardless of the business sector, it’s a focus on the people involved that makes a venture successful. “You have to start with the basic fundamentals and best practices,” says Mackenzie. “It’s not just about putting a label on everything. It’s about having a conversation with customers.” Mackenzie says his family is the reason he works so hard – but also the reason he makes sure to take a break. “There’s a line that I won’t let work cross, and that’s my family,” he says. “I don’t let work push me so hard … that I miss out on the very reason why I’m working in the first place.” As NordikLeaf looks forward to the legalization of recreational cannabis Oct. 17, Mackenzie says the key to the company’s success will be building a careful foundation, in terms of people and infrastructure. The firm is currently constructing its first greenhouse, which will be 100,000 square feet and will begin production in 2019. Mackenzie says the design of this first phase is important for the possibility of future growth. “We don’t have the luxury of changing our minds,” he says.

Baker leads Keynote Group’s recruitment business, helping guide the firm she launched with her husband James in 2015 to a three-year revenue growth of nearly 1,000 per cent. In her impressive career, she has personally delivered more than $4 million worth of placements. The mother of two is a 2018 Forty Under 40 recipient and is active in various local community groups such as Women in Communications and Technology. A chiropractor for more than two decades, Beauchamp opened her own clinic in Orléans 16 years ago. Beauchamp, who is also a certified fitness trainer and former professional bodybuilder, founded the annual Ottawa Health and Wellness Expo and has authored two books on health and fitness.

Belanger moved to Ottawa with her husband Mark and their four children in 2008. The next year, she opened the city’s first massage therapy clinic dedicated to women. Since then, she has opened three more clinics in Orléans, Barrhaven and at Shopify’s downtown headquarters. A dedicated community volunteer, Belanger is also an accomplished marathon runner and a 2016 world karate champion in sparring. Over the past 13 years, Eagan and her team have raised $60 million for cancer care and research in eastern Ontario. She is the founder of Cancer Coaching, an innovative community-based health and social care service for cancer patients. A mother of two, Eagan is an active volunteer with the Life Saving Therapies Network, BioCanRx and Arvizio Health Technologies. A native of what is now Croatia (then Yugoslavia), Frankovich launched sports medicine clinic Medsport Ottawa in 2015. After leaving a well-paying IT job to go back to medical school at age 28, Frankovich has enjoyed a successful career in sports medicine, serving as a doctor for Canadian teams at four Olympic Games and being named assistant chief medical officer of the 45-member Canadian medical team at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. Garson opened Jet Black with her husband Brian in 2013. A hairstylist since age 21, she was the 2015 gold medallist for Canada in Wella Professionals’ TrendVision Awards. An active community volunteer, Garson has been a stylist for several charity fashion shows and holds an annual fundraiser for the Children’s Aid Society at the salon. After a 16-year career with various Ottawa design firms and the federal government, Hay launched her own interior design company, Hay Design, in 2004. Today, her team boasts more than a dozen designers and is known for its work with commercial and industrial clients ranging from restaurants and retail stores to health clinics and condominiums. In 2015, she started a second business, a retail home furnishings and decor boutique in downtown Perth. The national leader of Gowlings’ corporate commercial practice, Hennessey earned a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from Carleton University before studying law at the University of Windsor. Since joining the firm in 2005, Hennessey has worked with clients in a wide range of industries and sizes from startups to multinational corporations. A Forty Under 40 recipient in 2014, the mother of two is a board member of the Ottawa Ronald McDonald House and the Hnatyshyn Foundation. An award-winning academic, educator and entrepreneur, Ledohowski helped launch online writing tool EssayJack and is the firm’s CEO. An alumna of Kanata’s L-Spark accelerator, Ledohowski was recognized as a Silver Stevie Award winner for female entrepreneur of the year in Canada in 2016. The Manitoba native also serves on the board of trustees for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. An RBC employee since 1987, Sarellas is the first woman to head the bank’s Ontario North and East region. Before coming to Ottawa, she was RBC’s regional vice-president for the Greater Toronto commercial banking group and also spent time at RBC’s commercial banking division in Vancouver. The mother of two sits on the board of the Ottawa Hospital Foundation and enjoys travelling.

A commerce graduate of the University of Guelph, Schelck opened Hintonburg culinary event space Urban Element with her husband Oliver in 2005. Last year, she launched Cultivating Cooks, a food literacy program for youth. Schelck also teaches part-time at Algonquin College’s School of Business and is an active fundraiser for the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. Stone heads a national group that provides front-line worker training and program resources to half a million families in 2,300 communities across Canada. Before joining FRP, Stone was a senior director in the Public Health Agency of Canada and was responsible for research and public policy on child and youth issues. She has worked extensively with Indigenous communities and families.

CONSTRUCTION PERMITS

TOP CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS Source: City of Ottawa construction permits, July 2017 to June 2018

Local construction intentions hit the highest level in nearly a decade in 2017, driven in large part by work to refurbish the former Nortel Networks campus on Carling Avenue into a new headquarters for DND. The total value of construction permits was up three per cent to $2.69 billion. The industry appears to have carried that momentum into 2018, with construction intentions in the first six months of the year rising 3.7 per cent over the same period in 2017 to $1.37 billion, according to municipal data. Here are some of the largest construction permits issued over the past 12 months, between July 2017 and June 2018.

*Thierry Mesana’s salary figure is a combination of his compensation from the University of Ottawa Hearth Institute, where he is president and CEO, and the University of Ottawa, where he is a director. **Denis Gravel’s salary figure is a combination of his compensation from the Eastern Ontario Laboratory Association, where he is a pathologist and La Cité, where he is a manager. The provincial government does not disclose the work location of individuals included in its annual disclosure of public-sector employees who earn more than $100,000. This means that many Ottawa residents who work for Toronto-based ministries and organizations, such as those employed by the Crown Attorney’s Office, have been excluded.
