Our National Capital Region

Since being named Canada's capital by Queen Victoria in 1857, Ottawa (formerly Bytown) has grown into a city for all seasons. From Winterlude in February to the Tulip Festival in Spring and SuperEx in the summer, the national capital is alive with activity every day of the year.

Situated on the Ottawa River, a common border shared by the Provinces of Ontario and Québec, Ottawa uniquely represents the nation, reflecting our two founding cultures in day-to-day life.

The National Capital Region (NCR), comprised of the former Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton on the Ontario side, and the Communauté urbaine de l'Outaouais (Aylmer, Gatineau and Hull) on its Québec side, has the fourth largest population in Canada with over 1,000,000, and one of Canada's fastest growth rates. The NCR is alive with vitality and rich in historic tradition; a unique blend of English and French Canada. 

The NCR is located at the meeting of the Ottawa River, the Rideau River (flowing between Kingston on Lake Ontario and the Ottawa) and the Gatineau River (flowing from northern Québec).

The Ottawa Real Estate market has grown steadily over the last 50 years. It is approximately 200 km from Montréal and 400 km from Toronto, Canada's two largest cities.
