One of Ottawa’s greatest assets is the diversity of its communities. The City of Ottawa is made up of approximately 100 neighbourhoods and villages, located in urban, suburban, and rural areas.  Arts, heritage, and culture are part of each of these communities. Many neighbourhoods and villages have galleries, performance venues, museums, art schools, public art, heritage sites, and other interesting places to explore and enjoy; BUT, equally important are the stories, traditions, and customs of the people who live in these communities. That is why the City of Ottawa has initiated neighbourhood cultural mapping pilot projects in three neighbourhoods: Bayshore, Carp, and Vanier. We hope to uncover unique aspects of these neighbourhoods, highlight their distinct identities, and give community members an opportunity to share their stories. The plan is to add more neighbourhoods and villages over time.

Select a neighbourhood or village below to see its cultural map or to view a story. You may also contribute a story about any of these communities. Neighbourhood names and boundaries have been established by the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study.
