In an interview with the Ottawa Business Journal for its 2023 Welch LLP Business Growth Survey report, Goldy Hyder highlights Ottawa’s economic advantages and the importance for Canada to fully utilize the talents of all its people and newcomers.  

“Here in Ottawa, institutions like Carleton University, University of Ottawa and Algonquin College attract students from around the world. With the diversity and beauty of the city, the opportunities to work in both the public and private sector — plus, better affordability than you’ll find in other major cities — I think Ottawa has a great story to tell, to attract the talent that is available here in the country, but also around the world.”
