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.  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.  Since then, it has become the political center of Canada. The original boundaries of the city were expanded by numerous annexations, and then replaced by a new incorporation and amalgamation in 2001 that significantly increased its land area.
Ottawa is the Canadian city with the highest educated population. 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. 
Ottawa is named after the Ottawa River. Its name derives from Algonquin Odawa which means \"to trade\".  Odawag is the modern name of the city in Algonquin.  Ottawa was built on territory that is not ceded to the Algonquin Anishinaabe, since Canada has never signed a treaty with them.
