Ottawa, as the nation`s capital, is the fourth-largest city in Canada. In 2013 Ottawa was estimated as the most educated city in Canada, because more than a half of the population has college or university degree. Furthermore, this city is famous for a big number of research institutions. There is one interesting fact that Ottawa has a high standard of living and low unemployment level.

In Ottawa the main language is English, but you are able to find a lot of French-speaking people. Bilingualism is a common thing in Canada, because this country is a home for thousands of immigrants.
