Our Book's Trailer

wingd's team

We are incredibly excited to share a piece of our city, Ottawa, with everyone. It has taken us two years to breathe life into this guidebook on our nation's capital and through long arduous times, we remained steadfast in our goal for the book. Ottawa often gets judged as being boring, governmental and uncreative, and we want to use our first book to change that type of discourse and negative perception by providing an insider's perspective on our city like never before. From its beautiful landscapes to its kind people, Ottawa is unparalleled and incomparable.
