COMMON GROUND: Ottawa mayoral candidates debate


Carleton Dominion Chalmers Centre, 355 Cooper Street, Ottawa, ON, K2P 0G8


October 20, 2022 - October 24, 2022
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

On behalf of United Way East Ontario, Ottawa Board of Trade, Ottawa and District Labour Council and Carleton University, we thank you for joining us at Thursday night’s mayoral candidates debate.

We trust you found Catherine McKenney’s and Mark Sutcliffe’s positions on economic prosperity, social justice, and labour rights to be informative and insightful.

As Michael Allen, President and Chief Executive Officer said last night:

“[The partners] recognize that this moment requires a united front. We must find the things that connect us and align on shared goals — despite our differences — to build a stronger, healthier community for everyone.”

These issues are important to everyone in Ottawa, and, as you head to the polls on Monday, October 24, we hope our deep dive into these issues helped inform your decision.

If you missed the debate or want a recap, you can rewatch the livestream below.

If you are unsure where your polling station is located, please look at Elections Ottawa’s website. You can also read recaps of last night’s event via CTV Ottawa and the Ottawa Citizen.

Thanks again for joining us at Common Ground to learn how Ottawa’s top-polling mayoral candidates look to tackle the tough problems in our city.
