Welcome to Virtual Ottawa! You can’t come to Ottawa so we’re bringing the heritage, history, culture and natural wonders of Ottawa to you!
We acknowledge that Ottawa is located in the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabe Nation. CES 2021 extends our respect to all First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples for their valuable contributions, past and present.
As Canada’s capital, it is home to the iconic Parliament Hill, museums, and the Rideau Canal – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a source of pride for all Canadians. Find out more about our most popular attractions which you can explore virtually.
No matter the season, Ottawa is filled with excitement and beauty. There is always something new to discover in Ottawa.
