The Capital Advantage

Welcome to Ottawa
A Vibrant, Dynamic, Bilingual Capital City


A City of Opportunity


Where else will your class assignments take you from Parliament Hill to the National Gallery — from pro sports to art exhibits — from city streets to the Supreme Court.

A City of Stories


Media organizations, museums and NGO headquarters. National business associations and policy think tanks. They’re all here in our capital city, and they all have stories. At Carleton, you’ll learn how to tell them.

A City of Culture


And at the end of day, where else can you and your classmates find wonderful music, food, fashion and art, just steps from the historic Rideau Canal.
