One of Carleton’s greatest assets is its location in Ottawa, Canada’s national capital city.
A cosmopolitan city of just over one million people, Ottawa is one of the world's most beautiful capital cities with its historic architecture, interconnecting waterways, park-like greenery, and extensive walking and biking trails. Elegant shops, international restaurants, movie theatres, nightclubs, and a bustling farmers' market flourish in a dynamic downtown core situated in the shadow of Canada's majestic Parliament buildings. Ottawa is close to Canada's two largest cities - Montreal and Toronto, and a short flight from Boston and New York City. As such, it is a great location for exploring and travel.
