    Because Ottawa

    Canada’s capital is shaking its reputation as a dull public service city and making a name for itself as a diverse tech hub. An affordable cost of living, great nightlife and culture and year round outdoor activities minutes from downtown - why wouldn’t you want to work in Ottawa?
