North American Van Lines: The Best of Ottawa Moving Companies

As the capital of Canada and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation, Ottawa is a very attractive place for residents of all walks of life. Loaded with culture, a metropolis atmosphere, many things to do and serving as a hub for industry, Ottawa is a very popular relocation destination for a number of reasons.

According to the 2011 Canadian Census, Ottawa was home to just over 883,000 residents, and the population increased by 8.8 percent between 2006 and 2011. Being one of the largest cities in Canada, Ottawa is a densely populated city with around 316 people per square kilometre. There are many universities in Ottawa as well, including Carleton University, Algonquin College and the University of Ottawa, so there is a distinct student presence.

Activities and Attractions in Ottawa

Ottawa is full of cultural icons that aren't just important to the city, but the country as a whole. One of these includes the Rideau Canal National Historic Site, which begins it's path in Kingston and ends in Ottawa. You can boat, canoe or kayak through the canal to learn about the city's history and get a one-of-a-kind view of your new home.

There are also several museums in Ottawa to explore and challenge your mind, including the Canadian Museum of Nature, which features many exhibits on biodiversity, wildlife and research and sustainability, and the National Gallery of Canada, a site that is teeming with creative expression through collections of photography, paintings and other media. The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is another fascinating place to visit, as it is home to several planes and several fields of technological research.

Ottawa is also home to several seasonal festivals that are great for new residents, such as the RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest in the summer, the Ottawa Folk Festival in the fall and the Canadian Tulip Festival in the spring.

Moving to Ottawa

Ottawa is split between Quebec and Ontario, but the city is easy to get to regardless of what direction you're coming from with your Ottawa moving company.

There are many other amenities that you can enjoy with northAmerican, including clean-up and unpacking services, full-service packing and no-surprise pricing so that you are getting the best possible deal on your relocation.

  • Compared with previous moves this was the best that Ive experienced. I was impressed with driver in particular and how he managed the crews on both ends.
