Welcome to our website at the City of Ottawa.
Whether you are a resident or visitor, I hope you find our site helpful. On behalf of my City Council colleagues, we are proud to serve the residents of Canada's Capital during this term of council.
Our city of over 900,000 residents is blessed with the best of many worlds: Great urban neighbourhoods; rural villages and dynamic suburban communities.
We are also fortunate to have one of Canada's most highly educated and talented workforces, and home to one of Canada's largest concentrations of hi-tech firms.
Ottawa is also Canada's largest rural community, home to hundreds of innovative and productive farms. Visitors and residents alike are treated to both national and local arts and cultural institutions that we are very proud of.
To our visitors, welcome and thank you for visiting. We hope you will consider Ottawa your second home town.
To our residents, it is an honour to serve as your representative and please feel free to contact me or your City Councillor if we can be of service to you and your family.
