A montage of the city of Ottawa
Ottawa census

Ottawa is the capital city of Canada. It is located in the southern portion of the province of Ontario, at the confluence of the Ottawa River and the Rideau River. Ottawa borders Gatineau, Quebec, and forms the core of the Ottawa–Gatineau census metropolitan area (CMA) and the National Capital Region (NCR). Ottawa is the political centre of Canada and headquarters to the federal government. The city houses numerous foreign embassies, key buildings, organizations, and institutions of Canada's government, including the Parliament of Canada, the Supreme Court, the residence of Canada's viceroy, and Office of the Prime Minister.


  • If Ottawa giveth, then Ottawa can taketh away… This is o­ne more reason why Westerners, but Albertans in particular, need to think hard about their future in this country. After sober reflection, Albertans should decide that it is time to seek a new relationship with Canada. …Having hit a wall, the next logical step is not to bang our heads against it. It is to take the bricks and begin building another home – a stronger and much more autonomous Alberta. It is time to look at Quebec and to learn. What Albertans should take from this example is to become "maitres chez nous".

  • All eligible property owners are required to submit a property status declaration starting in January 2023, even if you are using the property as a principal residence. If you own more than one property, you must submit a declaration for each.
    The City is sending out preliminary notices to affected property owners to prepare for the declaration period. An additional reminder will be sent in January. This notice does not mean you will be billed the Vacant Unit Tax.
  • This is definitely new. It's a byproduct of the economic conditions. It's been really hard for us to acquire units in the past because it was such a competitive marketplace. But, with some of the adjustments in the market, it's a cost-effective way of adding units to our portfolio that are currently affordable.
