Ottawa Boat Cruises bringing Canal tours back
The boat cruises on the Rideau Canal are coming back.
Parks Canada confirmed Ottawa Boat Cruises was selected to deliver the service starting next season following a competitive process that saw three companies apply for the contract.
Meaghan Bradley, spokeswoman for Parks Canada, said the local company was chosen by a committee consisting of representatives from the National Capital Commission, city officials, the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, and Parks Canada.
“The Request for Proposals was a fair, open and transparent competitive process,” she said.
