Ottawa (/’[email protected]@/ (listen),/’[email protected]/; Canadian French pronunciation of: [otawa]), is Canada's capital city. The capital city of Canada is located on the south bank the Ottawa River, in the southern part of Ontario. It borders Gatineau, Quebec. [14] Ottawa was the fourth-largest Canadian city and fourth-largest metro area as of 2021.

The city was founded in 1826 under the name Bytown. It was incorporated in 1855 as Ottawa. [15] Since then, it has become the political center of Canada. The federal government, which is the largest employer in the area, has a strong influence on the economic landscape of the area. The original boundaries of the city were expanded by numerous annexations, but were eventually replaced by a new incorporation and amalgamation in 2001 that significantly increased its land area. The City of Ottawa Act of Government of Ontario establishes the municipal government. It has an elected council in 23 wards, as well as a mayor who is elected to the city-wide office.

Ottawa is the Canadian city with the highest educated population[16]. It also has a number of colleges, universities, research and cultural institutions such as the University of Ottawa, Carleton University and the National Arts Centre. There are many national museums and historical sites. [17]
