Life in Ottawa

The fourth largest metropolitan area in Canada, with a population of over 1 million (2011 census), Ottawa boasts all of the qualities of a major urban centre with refreshingly few of the downfalls.
In 2016, Ottawa was voted Canada’s Best Place to Live for the third consecutive year. The city is compact and easy to get around by car, public transit, or via its extensive network of bicycle paths. In the winter, residents can enjoy the five-kilometer ice surface of the Rideau Canal—the world’s largest outdoor skating rink. Temperatures vary greatly from the low 30 degrees Celsius in the summer to below zero in winter. Autumn and spring bring moderate temperatures around 16 to 20 degrees.
Ottawa is filled with parks and recreational facilities. It is located on the Ottawa and Rideau Rivers, and near the Gatineau Hills, favored by residents for hiking and skiing. As a capital city and a cosmopolitan centre bordering Ontario and Quebec, Ottawa boasts an ethnically diverse and bilingual population. With 29 museums, 50 galleries and theatres, vibrant nightlife, fine dining, professional sports teams and various festivals and cultural activities, Ottawa has a little something for everyone.
