It’s important to feel safe in your home, and if you’re moving to a new city, it can be hard to tell where the safest neighbourhoods are from an outside perspective. Voted the third safest city in Canada in 2024, you’re sure to find a neighbourhood in Ottawa that suits your lifestyle and makes you feel secure. Join us as we explore communities in Ottawa, showcasing the best the city has to offer in terms of security, tranquillity, and community living.

West Carleton-March Ward

Combining all the charm of a small town and the convenience of being near a big city, this is a great neighbourhood for people looking to move to Ottawa for work or school but still want access to a country lifestyle.


Barrhaven is a large suburb with quick access to downtown, both by car and public transit, and to the Ottawa Greenbelt. That makes this community a great choice for people looking to rent an apartment but still have ample access to nature. 


If you’re moving with your family, Orléans is an amazing choice with amenities for all ages. From multiple public and private schools to shopping centres, movie theatres, and even a performing arts centre—there’s a lot to do without leaving the neighbourhood, but you still get the convenience of being near the downtown area. 


Kanata has established communities like Katimavik-Hazeldean and growing ones like Fernbank Crossing, giving you many options for the type of community you want to live in. The area itself houses plenty of technology companies in a central location, giving you a convenient commute without compromising on access to nature.


Stittsville is amazing for a multi-generational family looking for communities with things to do for kids and seniors. With indoor skating rinks, soccer fields, and a swimming pool, there’s an activity waiting for you every season. Stittsville also has community and recreation centres for further activities and easy access to downtown by the O-Train.

Blackburn Hamlet

The village feel of Blackburn coupled with the convenience of a 20-minute commute into downtown, makes this a great neighbourhood for working professionals who don’t want to live directly in the city centre. With a multitude of park spaces, Blackburn is a great neighbourhood for people who like to bike or just take nice, long walks.
