The Ottawa Valley—Pretty as a Picture

The Ottawa Valley has much to offer newcomers and long-time residents alike—from our friendly hospitality and four beautiful seasons for leisure, recreation, adventure and outdoor activities, to a choice of rural or urban living.

Both the Trans-Canada Highway and the mighty Ottawa River run through the area, which is also bordered by the infamous Algonquin Provincial Park to the southwest and Canada’s Capital, the City of Ottawa, to the east.

The Valley boasts many unique communities, each with its own special blend of attractions and characteristics that will provide the right lifestyle for you.
