OBJ launches Book of Lists 2022 with virtual event

The Ottawa Business Journal officially launched its 2022 Book of Lists today with a virtual event that featured interviews with business leaders from the Ottawa community.

The Book of Lists, an annual publication from OBJ, provides a local business directory with vital information for every CEO and business owner. Searching the book of listings allows readers to take an in-depth look at the local economy as well as local businesses based on numbers and categories that Google won’t be able to find, making it the ultimate tool for navigating the Ottawa business.

Lisa Thibodeau, the project’s lead researcher, spoke at the event about the work involved in creating the Book of Lists, calling the publication “a great summary and snapshot” of Ottawa business. The project includes everything from Ottawa’s trendiest neighborhoods to over 30 industry listings, with plenty of editorial content in between.

“Even in the age of Google, you can’t access the kind of information that you’ll find in the list book,” said OBJ editor Michael Curran.

Viewers received an inside look at the book of listings as well as testimonials from some of the business owners featured in the post. These leaders outlined what their businesses look like today, after two years of the pandemic, and what the future holds for Ottawa’s economy.

The event included interviews with executives from companies such as Boyden, the best executive search firm of 2022, Commissionaires Ottawa, Fenix, TCC Canada and OCOBIA. The live show previewed the top five companies in industries including engineering and accounting firms, fintech companies, craft brewers and more.

Copies of the Book of Lists will be distributed to Ottawa businesses in the coming weeks. If you would like to purchase a printed copy and have it delivered to your home or business, click here.
