Why Living in Ottawa Should Be Your Next Move

Are you contemplating your next move? Our nation’s capital has so much to offer, which is why Ottawa should be at the top of your list. Here’s why it’s a worthy place to consider moving to.

Good Variety of Neighbourhoods

Though it doesn’t have the range of options compared to other major cities like Toronto, Ottawa still offers a great mixture of neighbourhoods that can suit various lifestyles. Whether you prefer urban and sophisticated, downtown hipster, family-centric with tree-lined streets, or a more quiet and rural setting, there is something to suit everyone here. 

City Meets Country Charm

As our nation’s capital, it might surprise you that Ottawa is still 90% rural. This is what gives it a unique balance between city living and country charm. It has a noticeable small-town vibe that’s welcoming, friendly and less rushed than other cities. At the same time, it has everything you need within reach when you want to enjoy the buzz of the city, including premium shopping centers, arts, entertainment and lots of dining options. 

Lots of Recreational Opportunities

Ottawa is a four-season city which means there is always something to do, especially when it comes to outdoor activities. Being surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes makes it convenient any time you want to step away from the hustle and enjoy some R&R in nature. You can take advantage of the many picturesque trails that wind within and around the city, or just head 30 minutes outside the city to access amazing destinations for camping, boating, skiing, hiking and more. Plus, the Ottawa River and Rideau Canal run right through the city as well, allowing residents to enjoy being on or near the water without having to go far.

Employment Opportunities

There are many employment opportunities throughout Ottawa that span a variety of industries with good salaries. These include government, tech, manufacturing, construction, military, and more. It’s an ideal place to move to for those who are looking for a new opportunity with great pay.

A Variety of Housing Options

Ottawa is going through a major boom at the moment, with lots of development projects underway. This offers plenty of opportunities for buyers to get into the market and find the right home for their needs, budget and lifestyle. It’s also ideal for anyone looking for an investment property.
