OttawaStart.com is an independent web site that features community events and info about our city – kind of like a big community newspaper. The original version of this site was launched in September 1998 (here’s a version of the site from back then) and has been evolving for almost two decades.

The owner and executive editor of OttawaStart.com is Devyn Barrie, a 2018 Algonquin College journalism graduate.
