Moving to Ottawa?
Young career-driven adults are falling in love with Ottawa, from job security, economic stability, and lifestyle. Ottawa is a wonderful city to live in. We know Ottawa!
I want to share with you some of the wonderful things here in the city, and why it is a wonderful place to call home. 72% of Canadians age 23 to 38 have a goal of owning a home here in Ottawa. That goal can be achieved sooner rather than later, compared to any other big city in Canada, due to affordability and economic stability. You can buy two homes in Ottawa for the price of one in Toronto, just to put a bit of perspective.
Top employers such as the government, healthcare, military, high tech are driving Ottawa with above-average wages and security. The city saw a net gain of about 4,000 Millenial Canadians moving from province to province here to Ottawa.
☕️ Ottawa has a wonderful charm with trending neighbourhoods for whatever your needs may be, whether you need public transportation or parking, walking distance to coffee shops, great restaurants, the gym. Whenever your needs may be, we will find a neighbourhood that has the right fit for you. Now let's talk about food! Ottawa’s cultural diversity brings in a large food platter to the table. Whether it's from little Italy, Chinatown, the ByWard Market, many food trucks, Lebanese restaurant, or a little bistro’s, the city has a wide variety of local eateries and fresh food for you.
There are a lot of fresh food markets, either in the summer and in the winter. Parkdale, Lansdowne, as well as within the community, such as Cumberland, fresh food options are endless and the quality of food is phenomenal. The local brewery scene is also growing here in Ottawa. There are many different vendors to choose from as well as you can go and enjoy festivals or just the casual one night with music and great food and drinks.
The quality life here in Ottawa adds to the desired charm. The nation's capital has a low population density compared to land, and it's very clean and green. You have a good public transit system, which is actually expanding. Many walking and biking paths are a great way to get from point A to B on sunny days. Parkways closed just for bikers and pedestrians on Sundays, which is awesome and such a fun activity to do too.
If you're planning on staying in town and looking for some activities to do there are so many in both the summer and the winter. Redblack Games at Landsdowne, Senators at the CTC in Kanata, as well as there are so many artisan markets, Parliament Hill Yoga, festivals both music and art, as well as museums. In the winter you'll be able to go snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing. Don't forget about the Rideau Canal, which is the largest skating rake in the world, and don't forget to go get a Beavertail. They are quite delicious! ⛷ On the other hand, if you're looking for a staycation or to get away for a few days, there are many spots that you can go 30 to 60 minutes away from the city.
