In 1987, John Pigott of Morrison Lamothe Inc., and several other prominent Ottawa families, founded the Ottawa Chapter of CAFE. CAFE Ottawa serves not only the Ottawa Carleton region but the surrounding area as well. With members in Smiths Falls, Hawkesbury and the Ottawa Valley, our boundaries continue to expand. From large, well known household names to small Mom & Pop shops, CAFE Ottawa has something for every family business. Where there is a family business, there is a need for CAFE.
