The Ottawa Region, covering an
area 4,662 square kilometres (1,800 square miles) in size, is unique in its
history, geography and lifestyle.
It offers a wide variety of urban
attractions: many of Canada's best museums and cultural facilities, as well as
the Parliament Buildings and other historical structures and major institutions,
are located in the Capital area.
At the same time, the Ottawa Region lies
within minutes of golfing, fishing, hiking, skiing, and many other outdoor
adventures and wilderness activities. Three rivers (the Ottawa, the Rideau and
the Gatineau), hundreds of lakes, the historic Rideau Canal for boating and
skating, green spaces, and bicycle paths provide ample natural amenities within
the Capital area.
The major local industries are
advanced technology, tourism, retail and services. Ottawa has been ranked
sixth in the world in terms of quality of life. This rating is based on
many factors, including low crime rates, environmental cleanliness, public
services, political stability, and socio-economic conditions.
Ottawa is home to 12 national museums
devoted to Canadian art, nature, science and technology, aviation, war
civilization and more. Also of interest are the Royal Canadian Mint and the
Byward Market, which is constantly buzzing with people visiting the many
restaurants, shops and pubs.
