Lying on the South Bank of Ottawa River in the eastern portion of southern Ontario, stands Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. With a population of over one million, Ottawa is — despite its capital city status — the fourth largest city in Canada. However, don’t forget the integral importance of this incredible city! The city, formerly known as Bytown, is proud to present its status of having the highest standard of living amongst Canadian cities and possesses an unsurpassed record of low unemployment. Hop across the river to visit the neighboring city of Gatineau, or if you wish to explore the surrounding National Capital Region, possible locales of interest include Notre-Dame-de-la-Salette, Clarence-Rockland or Russell.
