The capital of Canada, Ottawa sits in the province of Ontario and closely borders the neighbouring province of Quebec. Well-known for having the highest standard of living in Canada, it boasts low unemployment and is consistently highly ranked in the global quality of life index. The city is home to approximately a million people, making it the 4th largest city in Canada.
As the capital city, Ottawa is home to a range of federal departments; indeed, the federal government is the city’s largest employer. However, Ottawa, like many other cities in Canada, enjoys a healthy high-tech economy and has earned the nickname ‘Silicon Valley North’. Many reputable organisations, including Nortel and Mitel, were founded in Ottawa and it plays host to regional bases for Nokia, IBM and Hewlett Packard.
Regus offers clients a choice of three serviced offices, including the stunning Fairmont Chateau Laurier Centre in downtown Ottawa. It is within walking distance of many tourist attractions and gourmet restaurants. Alternatively, choose a more modern office space at our 343 Preston Centre, a ten minute drive from downtown. Preston Street is another popular local destination with markets, delis and restaurants on the doorstep.
While in Ottawa, you may want to take advantage of Regus’ meeting rooms, which can be hired for as little or as long as you need. Our co-working spaces are also popular, offering shared working space with minimal commitment.
