As Canada’s capital, Ottawa is an ideal place to experience some of the best attractions. The region was first home to Indigenous Peoples who lived, met and traded in the city. The city’s name is derived from the Algonquin word ‘Odawa’ which means ‘traders’. Many attractions include the iconic Parliament Hill, the national museums and the Rideau Canal.
Ottawa ranks well in four key categories: society, education, innovation and economy. In fact, Ottawa was ranked the best place to live in Canada by MoneySense Magazine in 2016. Ottawa is considered a safe city that is friendly to newcomers and offers many organizations and support services to immigrants. The high level of diversity and inclusion makes living in the city an enriching experience. The average home price in Ottawa is expected to rise to $738,200, with an average increase of 17% year-over-year.
