TechtoberFest is back!

The Kanata North Business Association started something awesome with TechtoberFest last year. This year it's a Community Collaboration with our friends from The Ottawa Network, The Ottawa Network for Education / JA Ottawa, and Collab Space. We invite you to attend this outdoor Fall Party which starts at the Community Hub and then flows to a special edition of Entrepreneurs in Action at Collab Space.

Our community collaboration will support the Kanata Food Cupboard and the Ottawa Network for Education - Junior Achievement (JA) program.
