City of Ottawa

Canada’s National Capital

Ottawa is renowned as a clean, safe, yet dynamic place to live and work. This reputation, combined with the city's charm and many cultural and recreational activities, makes Ottawa a great destination.

Located in the heart of Canada's capital, the University's faculty and students can readily access the resources of federal government departments, agencies, laboratories and libraries, as well as those of the international community, through the many foreign embassies and high commissions located in Ottawa. And because Ottawa is also the capital of Canada's high-technology industry, the University has forged valuable links and partnerships with several of Canada's leading high-tech firms.
