At Carleton, we have the distinct advantage of being situated in the nation’s capital, which offers our students unique opportunities. We also live in a city that is renowned, both at home and abroad, for its natural beauty and its quality of life.

Ottawa, the seat of Canada’s federal government, is also home to over 1,800 high tech companies, more than 130 embassies and high commissions, national museums and a large percentage of Canada’s major medical, clinical and life sciences research centres.

The city is also one of the most picturesque capitals in the world – with lots of neighbourhood parks and tranquil green spaces, waterways that wind through the city, and historical and architectural landmarks scattered throughout. Consistently ranked as one of Canada’s most liveable and safe cities, Ottawa is part big city, part small town.

Thinking of making Ottawa the location for your studies? Start capitalizing on life in the nation’s capital. It has lots to offer — no matter where your tastes and interests lie, you’ll find something here for you! Find out more about life in Ottawa.
