It’s been ten years since Apt613 launched on a cold January day in 2008. From the outset the mission of the website was to get Ottawans to get off their couch to discover their city. By getting the community to write about itself, we doubled the site’s impact by not only letting people know about new and exciting artists, businesses and events, but also providing them with a different and fun way to support their community. We’ve worked with hundreds of amazing contributors throughout the years, from moonlighting public servants to aspiring young journalists and folks just looking for another way to connect.
