What are the best and worst parts about living in Ottawa

Pros: Stable economy because it is the capital.Lots of museums, arts.Great parks, trails and green spaces.

Much more laid back lifestyle than the Greater Toronto Area, way less traffic.Much better housing prices.Great rail service to Toronto and Ottawa.

Good airport but you may have to fly through Toronto or Montreal for many long haul flights.Cons: You may find it difficult to find a job if you don’t speak French as almost all government jobs in the area require you to be bilingual, government contractors and retail stores etc prefer to hire bilingual employees.Applies mainly in the downtown areas.

Not so much in the western neighbourhoods ie Kanata where there is a large tech park.There is not the huge mix of restaurants and entertainment that exists in the GTA but its more than adequate for most people.
