On December 31, 1857, Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom chose her to be the capital of Canada because she was a neutral city to the predominant English and French communities and because of her distant geographical position on the border with a potential enemy of the time, who was none other than the United States of America.
All of the city’s services are bilingual, available in English and French, since in Ottawa, despite the predominance of the anglophone population, there is also a significant Francophone population that, according to 2005 censuses, occupies 32.6 per cent of its population.
