Ottawa Cultural Alliance: Collectively advancing Ottawa as a vibrant, cultural capital city.

Ottawa’s cultural sector contributes greatly to our city’s economy and our enviable quality of life.

The Ottawa Cultural Alliance (OCA) works collaboratively to strategically address shared opportunities and challenges to further advance the sector’s success.  Members of the Alliance have collaborated for many years to advance cultural priorities in the City of Ottawa.  In spring 2015, as we advocated for completion of the City of Ottawa’s Renewed Action Plan for Arts, Culture and Heritage (2013-18), the groups agreed to acknowledge this activity by giving our collaboration a formal name.

The Alliance comprises umbrella organizations that collectively serve as the voice for this vibrant sector, including:

AOE Arts Council, Council of Heritage Organizations in Ottawa (CHOO|COPO), Heritage Ottawa, Ottawa Arts Council, Ottawa Festivals and Ottawa Museum Network.
