Ottawa Expat Events

Enjoy your Ottawa Expat Experience

Canada's capital, named after the Odaawaa first nations people and now nicknamed "Bytown", opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as Parliament Hill, a fine example of the Gothic revival style and Canada's house of democracy,, the traditional celebration of Canada’s Canadian Thanksgiving, to savoring a dish of maple pancakes. The InterNations network is a place made for the Ottawa expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Canada. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Ottawa, from ʺHow do I "survive" a Canadian winter?ʺ to ʺAre there any day-care facilities for infants in my city?ʺ
