Ottawa is a Big City with a Small-Town Feel

Described as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, Ottawa caters to all lifestyles from the downtown urban core to family-oriented communities to rural country atmospheres.

Surrounded by all that nature has to offer, the National Capital Region provides outdoor enthusiasts with many great trails for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing just minutes from the downtown core in the Gatineau Hills, or a bevy of culinary, cultural, arts and entertainment experiences to explore just minutes from your door – as a city of festivals, Ottawa is home to internationally known music and culture festivals for every season.

Tour the Parliament Buildings, admire the treasures within the National Gallery of Canada (or one of many museums!), or enjoy a performance at the National Arts Centre. There are three universities and three colleges throughout the city, as well as public and private school options in English, French and other languages.
