OTTAWA


INTRODUCTION
Ottawa is the capital city of Canada, located at the southeast portion of the Province of Ontario. This city covers a total land area of 2,778.13 square kilometers. As a multicultural metropolis, over 20 percent of Ottawa’s population is born of foreign ethnicity.

Mercer, the largest human resources consulting firm based in New York (USA), has ranked Ottawa as the 16th in the worldwide roster for the city with the highest quality of living. Being the seat of the Canadian Government, Ottawa’s labor sector is comprised largely of public servants.

BRIEF HISTORY
Samuel de Champlain once surveyed the Ottawa area in 1613. However, this territory would remain uninhabited until 1801 when a British ex-soldier and pioneer named Philemon Wright moved from Massachusetts by the end of the American Revolution. This new settlement was called Columbia Falls Farm became the first permanent settlement in the area. This settlement would be later known as the town called Hull.

In 1826, the building of the Rideau Canal was initiated under the leadership of Lieutenant Colonel John By. The community that grew from the construction settlement was later known as Bytown, courtesy of the area’s army chief engineer. In 1851 railway linking Montreal and Toronto reached Bytown, contributing to its further growth. In 1855, Bytown changed its name to Ottawa when it became a full-fledged city.

Queen Victoria of England made Ottawa into a capital city of Canada in 1857. The University of Ottawa was founded in 1865 – originally, it was known as the College of Bytown. The first construction pipelines were built in 1867, providing all households in Ottawa with access to running water. In 1885, the city had its first electrical grid.
In April 1900, Ottawa and Hull was ravaged by a huge fire, destroying many houses and residential buildings. Fortunately, it was Ottawa’s last major catastrophe. Throughout the rest of the 21st Century, the capital city of Canada enjoyed unparalleled success. It became the center for public service labor and hi-tech industry throughout the commonwealth nation.

HISTORICAL LANDMARKS
The Rideau Canal is arguably the most important historical landmark in Ottawa’s history. It is the hallmark of the city’s fledgling transformation from a humble riverside settlement. It was originally built as a principal defensive and logistics waterway in preparation for the upcoming war with United States in 1832. By 2007, it was registered in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is the oldest and grandest historic site built in Ottawa.

One of the most prominent historical landmarks in Ottawa is the National War Memorial. It was built in 1939 to commemorate the sacrifices of Canadians throughout the many historical armed conflicts they have participated in. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was added in the overall design in year 2000 to serve as a collective cenotaph for all Canadians who will die in the serving the country in future wars.

The Notre Dame Cathedral is a renowned architectural masterpiece. However, it is interesting to take note that this building began as the church of St. Jacques built in 1832. The cathedral starkly captures Gothic revival elements, particularly with its interior tapestry of stone accoutrements and stained glasses.

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
One of Ottawa’s key tourist attractions is Parliament Hill. This building not only serves as the seat of Canadian government, its plazas are also the North American equivalent of the U.K.’s Trafalgar Square. Visitors stop by to witness the ceremonial “changing of the Royal Guards” by day or to gather for the “Sound and Lights” exhibition at night.

The ByWard Market is one of the oldest districts in Canada. It is the flagship tourist stopover for shoppers and night-lifers. This commercial neighborhood is replete with restaurants, clubs, cafes and other retail outlets apart from the traditional open air grocery stalls. This district is located east of Parliament Hill.

Anyone with a penchant for the extraordinary is drawn to the infamous Diefenbunker. This Cold War Museum is located in the actual underground tunnel complex built to protect Canada's government in the event of a nuclear attack. The labyrinth of exhibits is dedicated to preserving a part of 21st Century’s most tense and intriguing timeline.

THINGS TO DO IN THE CITY
Ottawa is an ideal destination for tourists who are history enthusiasts. However, this metropolis is also a haven for athletic cyclists. The 2-hour Ottawa Express City Bike Tour is a unique way of exploring the capital city of Canada. Departure time begins at 10:00 AM and one can absorb the city’s atmosphere before lunch break. This sightseeing program is quick, economical and (most importantly) fun. Anyone who wishes to push themselves a little further can opt for the Ottawa Highlights Half-Day Bike Tour. This program is a broader version in terms of geographic coverage and experience.

The Rideau Canal is also an ideal destination for fun outdoor activities. This UNESCO Heritage Site is a famous fluvial cruising spot during summer and autumn seasons. During the winter, the entire frozen channel serves as the biggest natural skating arena in the world.

People who wish to enjoy the capital city’s outdoor wonders are drawn to nature parks like the National Capital Greenbelt and the Central Experimental Farm. The natural preserve at the outskirts of Ottawa’s suburban zones are a popular destination for tourists who wish to explore Canada’s renowned woodlands. The National Capital Greenbelt encircles Ottawa’s urban zone. The Experimental Farm, on the other hand, is located in the middle of the concrete jungle. Technically, this tourist spot is a huge park that emulates the appearance of a rural community. This venue is replete with miniature lakes and winding walkways. It‘s a perfect destination for dog walking, jogging, skating or even picnic dining at sunset.
