OBJ Insider

The team at OBJ will be taking our annual holiday break, but that doesn’t mean your reading list should be empty.

From Dec. 22 to Jan. 1 inclusive, OBJ will be taking some time to recharge. To make sure we don’t leave you hanging, we’ve compiled a list of some of our most popular stories from the past few months.

“We’ve had a great time this year writing about the vibrant business community here in Ottawa,” said Anne Howland, OBJ’s editor in chief. “We’ve really appreciated our readers’ engagement and their support of OBJ, especially in these difficult times for the media industry.”
