Fun Facts About Ottawa, Ontario


  • True to being a trading capital, Ottawa got its name from adawe, an Algonquin word, which means “to trade”.
  • Ottawa used to be called Bytown after Colonel John By, an engineer who facilitated the construction of Rideau Canal. Bytown was renamed Ottawa in 1855.
  • Rideau Canal turns into the world’s longest skating rink during winter. It spans 7.8 kilometers.
  • Some people say that the Fairmont Château Laurier Hotel by the Rideau Canal is haunted by the ghost of Charles Melville Hays. He was the president of the hotel’s contractor and died on the Titanic about two weeks prior to the hotel's opening.
