The National Capital Region is becoming an increasingly popular area to call home, particularly for Torontonians and Québécois seeking city life with more of a small town charm. With so many features and options available to residents of this beautiful area, it’s never been a better time to set out and make a fresh start. Here is a look at why it makes sense to move into a Valecraft home in the Ottawa area.
Employment Opportunities and Commuting
Ottawa is a vibrant location for job seekers, rich with a wide variety of career opportunities. If you’re seeking employment in government, financial, higher education, or corporate fields specifically, then you’ve arrived to the right place. However, many start-ups and tech companies offering unique employment experiences have trickled into the area in recent years, with more marketing, tech jobs, and graphics-based positions becoming available. The area is obviously big on culture as well, being the capital of Canada and the home of iconic landmarks and services. Commuting throughout Ottawa has never been easier thanks to easy access to freeways such as the 417, as well as OC Transpo’s public transit services. Starting in 2018, the new O-Train LRT transit service will be available, reducing street traffic and streamlining the daily commutes of tens of thousands of employees. By moving into one of Valecraft’s communities in the region, you’re securing access to consistent and increasingly reliable public transportation.
Amenities, Attractions, and Services
Living in the National Capital Region allows for quick access to countless exciting events, amenities, services, shopping locations, and entertainment options, as well as many unique and culturally significant features that draw millions of visitors annually. Combined with the aforementioned OC Transpo services and streamlined road network, you’ll have easy access to the fruits of the area’s collective labour.
The National Gallery of Canada, Major’s Hill Park, and Parliament Hill are popular attractions offering deep and valuable insight into Canadian history and culture, and the ByWard Market is a fantastic hub of handmade crafts, farm-fresh produce, street performers, and delectable delicacies from around the world. Aside from these attractions, there are countless festivals and events every year, including RBC Ottawa Bluesfest for music lovers, and the impressive Ottawa Tulip Festival for those seeking yet another outdoor excursion as they wind along the iconic Rideau Canal.
Shopping and entertainment are aplenty, with several shopping centres including the Bayshore Mall, St. Laurent Centre, Place D’Orléans, and the popular Rideau Centre found all over the area. Theatres, specialty shops, and highly reviewed restaurants await you, as do several hospitals, educational institutes, and governmental services. The area offers every amenity imaginable, complimented by ample green space, vibrant gardens, and shimmering bodies of water.

For over 35 years, we here at Valecraft have witnessed an increasing variety of styles and designs go on the market, many of which offer residents a one-of-a-kind experience. The area is culturally rich and vibrant but organized in such a way whereas neighbourhoods retain their intended charm despite incorporating subtle modern accents.
