Parliament Ottawa real estate

Welcome to Ottawa!

Ottawa has been described as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world. As the fourth largest metropolitan area in Canada, with a population surpassing 1,000,000, Ottawa enjoys all the attributes of a major centre. Yet, it still maintains the atmosphere and charm of a smaller city. Ottawa is safe, clean and green, surrounded by three rivers and enclosed by a 42,240-acre greenbelt of protected farmland and wetlands.
The Rideau Canal, the world’s longest skating rink in the winter, meanders through the city. The Gatineau Hills, located only 10 minutes from the downtown core, offer spectacular views and outstanding recreational opportunities.
Ottawa boasts the finest in Canadian arts, culture and history. Tour the Parliament Buildings, admire the treasures within the National Gallery of Canada and our 29 museums (including 12 national museums) and enjoy performances at the National Arts Centre or the Great Canadian Theatre Company.
Celebrate in one of over 60 festivals, including the internationally recognized Winterlude, Ottawa International Jazz Festival, Bluesfest, Canadian Tulip Festival, and the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival.
If it is entertainment you are looking for, Ottawa has a variety of places to suit every taste. The Byward Market and Elgin Street are well-known for their night clubs, pubs and live music halls. For gaming we have The Hull Casino and the Rideau-Carleton Raceway. The Canadian Tire Centre an 18,500-seat sports and entertainment facility, offers NHL hockey (the Ottawa Senators), music’s biggest stars, figure skating, family events and more. TD Place, a part of Ottawa’s revitalized Lansdowne Park, offers CFL football (Ottawa RedBlacks) as well as wold class park space, shopping and restaurants.

And right around the corner we have big changes coming to commuters with new Light Rail Transit LRT and a year of celebration – Ottawa 2017 – Canada’s 150th birthday!
