Ottawa has been described as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world. Less than an hour's drive from the American border, Ottawa enjoys the attributes of a major center for the visual and performing arts, as well as other big city attractions. Yet, it still maintains the accessibility, atmosphere and charm of a smaller city, in addition to access to spectacular park and wilderness areas located within and around the city.

From humble beginnings, Ottawa has evolved into Canada's cultural capital. The most difficult problem visitors have when visiting Ottawa is choosing what to do first. There are over 50 galleries and theatres in the region, showcasing the best of Canadian and international art, theatre, music, and dance performances. The city's museums, heritage buildings, parks, and monuments paint an exciting picture of its colorful past, while also allowing a glimpse of its future.

Canada's Capital Region is the fourth largest metropolitan area in Canada, with a population of just over one million people. The Capital Region is an area comprising two provinces (Ontario and Quebec) and two main cities (Ottawa and Hull), creating a region much like Washington, DC in the United States. The region comprises 27 municipalities (11 on the Ontario side) and covers an area of 1,800 square miles.

Because of its position as the capital of Canada and seat of the federal government, Ottawa has traditionally enjoyed a stable economy and measured growth. In turn, this has provided a supportive business environment for its commercial, industrial, retail, hospitality and government-related industries.

The region is the headquarters of many national corporations. Termed "Silicon Valley North," Ottawa is home to more than 800 companies specializing in high technology. It is also a center for advanced research and development, especially in the fields of space science, telecommunications and environmental technology.
