Subject: Proposed New District of Kanata

Dear Justice Leitch:

I am writing to you today about the proposed electoral districts for Ottawa; specifically, I would like to express my support for the proposed new district of Kanata.

As City of Ottawa Councillor for Kanata North, I am committed to creating a community where residents want to live, work, and raise their families.

Kanata has seen tremendous growth these past years, and - judging by the amount of new development applications my office receives each week - there is no end in sight. The local economy is fueled by the Kanata North Technology Park, Canada's largest technology park. Today, it is home to more than 540 technology companies, employing 33,000 people, with 1,200+ open positions.

The proposed district of Kanata would bring its electoral quotient to 121,269 people. Hence, I encourage you to move forward with the Proposed Redistribution Plan, recognizing that the proposed electoral district of Kanata acknowledges past and future growth of Kanata and would enable better representation for this distinct and growing suburb and business park.


Cathy Curry
Councillor, City of Ottawa
Ward 4 – Kanata North
