Re: [Ottawa] Finding Place To Live

Chinatown! Rents are reasonable and you are close to Wellington.

As a young and presumably car-less man I'd advise you to stay close to downtown. Live no further west than Westborough (kinda pricey), and no further east than the Byward market or New Edinburgh. To the south you have the Glebe and old Ottawa south, which has many great rentals for young professionals.

Make a trip to Ottawa in February during reading week. Many rentals get listed towards the end of the university year, the listings that are free right now for April availability are probably vacant for a reason. Also the canal will be open for winterlude. Any neighbourhood along the canal from downtown to Carleton university is great, and you can skate to work once in a while

Congrats on the job!
