Following the lead of several BIAs and Community Associations, we put together an overview of local businesses and how they are adjusting to the COVID-19 situation.
Please note that while we do our best to keep this list as up-to-date as possible, some of the information here may be incorrect or outdated. If you see anything that should be updated or added, please let us know via: email@example.com.
The business names below link to the business' page or their facebook page. Some links redirect directly to relevant ordering information.
The City has launched a Buy Local campaign and has created an overview page with links to BIAs and other organizations that are trying to promote and help local businesses: https://ottawa.ca/en/business/economic-support-and-recovery/buy-local.
There are also some aggregator sites popping up that are there to help local businesses:
- Together Apart offers a list of local Ottawa businesses with links to order food for takeout and/or ways to buy gift cards.
- Love Local Delivery is an independent delivery service that is partnering with several restaurants to offer delivery options in addition to curb-side takeout.
- Takeout COVID is another site that lists local businesses that are offering takeout and/or delivery.
