Advertise with OutdoorOttawa

For the first time ever we are now accepting advertisers! OutdoorOttawa gives local and industry-related businesses the eyes and ears of 15,000 devoted, active, outdoors-loving, health-conscious, travel-friendly visitors each month who, quite frankly, like to spend money on gear and adventure and services!

Why Advertise on OutdoorOttawa?

OutdoorOttawa’s audience is ideal for businesses in a wide variety of industries who wish to present their products, services, announcements and events in front of an engaged, committed, and generally well-off group of people concentrated in the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

If your business involves…

  • Outdoor-oriented gear, rentals, and services (duh)
  • Hospitality and tourism (almost 20% of our traffic is from out-of-towners)
  • Health and fitness
  • Environmental awareness and consciousness
  • Anything uniquely Ottawa

… you should consider advertising through OutdoorOttawa!

In July 2019 OutdoorOttawa received more than 15,000 mostly Ottawa- and Gatineau-based visitors. This was consistent with both an overall trend towards higher traffic as well a regular seasonal high point.

  • Almost 60% of our visitors are in the highly coveted 25-44 age range,
  • 18% are part of the cash-flush active retirement and seniors cohort.
  • Our visitors are almost evenly split between men and women (57% / 43%)

In a typical month, 60% of OutdoorOttawa visitors are from within a 2 hour drive of downtown Ottawa, delivering a highly targeted and very localized audience.
