, Canada’s Capital, "is a cosmopolitan city that can be experienced in a variety of ways. From luscious green spaces that are hubs for physical activity in the 
warmer weather months, to more than 600 kilometers (373 miles) of scenic bike paths, to the tranquil Rideau Canal. As Canada’s Capital, Ottawa is home to several national museums that allow visitors to see some of the best art in the world, to learn about Canada’s military history, Aboriginal community and even learn about the young nation’s contributions to the world of flight. Ottawa is also a pedestrian-friendly city, in which some of the country’s best cultural attractions are within a short 20-minute walk from many downtown area hotels!" 1   

"Catch the urban vibe of Quebec’s fourth-largest city, Gatineau! Minutes away from Ottawa, discover the downtown core on foot or by bike, thanks to their extensive network of recreational pathways. Explore the Canadian Museum of History, Canada’s most visited museum. Stop in for a bite at one of their many restaurants, and sample local craft beers at our microbreweries. When evening comes, try your luck at the Casino du Lac-Leamy!" 2

The National Capital Commission (NCC) is the "main federal urban planner in Canada’s Capital Region. In this role, the NCC works to enhance the natural and cultural character of the Capital to ensure that it is an inspiring source of pride for all Canadians.  As the largest landowner in Canada’s Capital Region, the NCC cares for and protects vital public places that are uni que to our nation’s symbolic, natural and cultural heritage. As steward of these holdings, the NCC manages Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt, the Rideau Canal Skateway, urban lands and parks, pathways, scenic parkways, real property and heritage buildings, agricultural and research facilities, and commemorative monuments. It is also the custodian of the Capital’s six official residences." 3
