Welcome to Ottawa

Ottawa is Canada’s capital, a dynamic city of more than one million people. Located in the province of Ontario at the Quebec border, it’s a place where you’ll hear English and French spoken in the streets; where you can discover Canada’s proud heritage at impressive national sites and famous landmarks, including the Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site); and where you can spend much of your time exploring on foot. It’s a city steeped in culture, with world-class museums and galleries displaying stunning national collections and special exhibitions from Canada and around the world.
