Ottawa, Canada’s capital is located in the province of Ontario on the border with the province of Quebec, in central Canada. Its location, 350 kilometres east of Toronto, 200 kilometres west of Montreal, and just a short 90-minute flight from New York or Boston, makes travel to other centres easy.
The National Capital Region has a population of over one million. It is the country’s fourth-largest city and one of Canada’s most bilingual communities—nearly half a million people speak both English and French.
And Ottawa isn’t just a government town. It’s a high-tech city, a tourist city, a big-time sports city, and a university city. Make yourself at home!
