About the Ottawa Pet Expo

Ottawa Pet Expo is an expansion of Canada Pet Expo, the successful series of consumer shows currently running in Vancouver and Calgary by our partners at Canwest Shows.

Ottawa Pet Expo’s mission is to celebrate the love of pets! The show takes place on the second weekend of November at the EY Centre in Ottawa. Thousands of pets and pet owners in eastern Ontario and western Quebec bring their pets to the show and give them a weekend they will never forget (unless they’re goldfish!).

Ottawa Pet Expo is produced by the team at Caneast Show Inc.
