Nova Scotia ‘Scotiable’ – Ottawa, April 4th

Nova Scotia Scotiable 2014

Nova Scotia Scotiable 2014

White Point heads back to Ottawa to host 3rd Annual ‘Scotiable!’

For Nova Scotians living in the Ottawa area, a taste of home is served up a little closer to them annually. Thanks to ‘Scotiable!’, an event entering its 3rd year, created by White Point Beach Resort will be hosted from 5:30pm – 8pm, Friday April 4, 2014 at none other than the Lunenburg Pub in Ottawa.

Now an annual tradition for many Nova Scotians in Ottawa, the event is a cross between a Kitchen Party and a family reunion. Growing from just over 100 guests in its first year to more than 300, based on RSVP’s to date, organizers expect to welcome more Nova Scotians than ever in 2014.

Yvonne of Ottawa RSVPed saying “Looking forward to another great event!  Last year I ran into my cousin that I hadn’t seen in over 10 years! This year, I am meeting him there again.” While Myrtle summed up the sentiment of many, “Count me in again.  See you at the Lunenburg Pub on the 4th.  Had a blast last year.”

Creator of ‘Scotiable!’, White Point’s Marketing Manager, Donna Hatt,  says the event has exceeded expectations year after year. Guests this year, donning ‘bluenoses’, will enjoy sounds from home from the Ottawa-based Ceilidh Trailers, savour cocktails infused with Van Dykes Blueberry Juice, ever popular Keith’s beer along with Nova Scotian munchies, door prizes and the traditional signing of the Nova Scotia flag, a symbolic pledge of allegiance.

Hatt says, the event at its core is a social event, but serves a much greater purpose. “Nova Scotians are proud and enthusiastic folks, even more so when living away from home. ‘Scotiable!’ intentionally incorporates news from home, showcases special events and provides promotional materials that arm our guests with the details they need to be even better, more informed ambassadors for Nova Scotia. Annually we invite them to come home, and send their friends, colleagues and family to visit.”

Word is spread ‘socially’ on Facebook, Twitter and via email for the annual event which takes place the Friday evening before the Ottawa Travel & Leisure Show held on a Saturday and Sunday. Hatt says the evening is hosted by White Point in partnership with the Nova Scotia Tourism Agency, Saltscapes, sponsoring partners like Destination Halifax and Yarmouth & Acadian Shores, and other Nova Scotians in Ottawa participating in the travel show. It’s truly an event for Nova Scotians, by Nova Scotians.

Hatt says there’s room for more inviting Nova Scotia’s to help spread the word to their family and friends in Ottawa, to make plans to reunite at ‘Scotiable!’ 2014. They simply need to RSVP. Details are available at or simply Google Scotiable.
