The details are in place for a new not-for-profit corporation to take over management of the ByWard Market.

Ottawa Markets will be in charge of the ByWard Market starting Jan. 1, making this the last December holiday season that city hall has direct oversight of the tourist destination.

Council signed off on the final marching orders during its last meeting of 2017, clearing the way for a smooth transition between the planning department and the new Ottawa Markets board, which is chaired by former city councillor Peter Hume.
