Portrait of the National Capital Region of Ottawa-Gatineau

At the crossroads of French and English cultures
The National Capital Region of Canada is located at the confluence of French and English cultures, which gives it a unique character. It includes the city of Gatineau and the capital of Canada, Ottawa, two major urban areas of 226,000 and 812,129 inhabitants respectively. The Quebec side of Ottawa is named the Outaouais and promotes itself as a tourist destination all year round!

From the timber industry to public service
The region owes its economic development to the Ottawa river (la rivière des Outaouais) with the timber industry in the nineteenth century. Bearing the name of old Bytown, Ottawa had nearly 1000 people in 1828. In order to ensure the city was a more eloquent candidate in the selection of Canada’s capital, it was renamed in 1855 under its current name. The Outaouais is distinctive from other regions of Quebec’s economic stability due to the presence of a large contingent of federal officials.

Une multitude d’activités et des musées pour tous les goûts
La région offre aux voyageurs des expériences aussi diversifiées que le Canada : un calendrier d’activités variées, plusieurs parcs, des lieux de présentation renommés des arts visuels et de la scène, sans compter plus d’une douzaine de musées. On peut entre autres visiter, à Gatineau, le Musée canadien des civilisations et du côté d’Ottawa, le Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, le Musée canadien de la guerre, le Musée canadien de la nature et le Musée des sciences et de la technologie du Canada, qui sont des incontournables. Pour obtenir une liste complète des musées de la région, visitez le Musée virtuel du Canada.

A multitude of activities and museums for all tastes
The region offers travelers experiences as diverse as Canada itself, a schedule of various activities, several parks, renowned visual arts and performing arts venues, not to mention more than a dozen museums. In Gatineau, one can visit the Canadian Museum of Civilization and on the Ottawa side, the Museum of Fine Arts of Canada, the Canadian War Museum, the Canadian Museum of Nature and the Canada Science and Technology Museum. For a complete list of museums in the region, visit the Virtual Museum of Canada.
