Established in 1978 and amalgamated with Ottawa in 2001, Kanata is one of Ottawa’s largest and most sought after suburban communities. Located in Ottawa’s west end, Kanata is made up of several smaller neighbourhoods varying from townhomes, single homes, and condominiums. Kanata holds several public and Catholic schools, as well as private school options. Known for its strong technology sector in Kanata North; the leading technology park in Canada, as well as the close proximity to the Department of National Defence, there is strong interest in Kanata from both family-oriented and career-oriented buyers. The short, 20-minute commute to the downtown core makes it a favourable option for home-buyers in need of convenient access to downtown workplaces and amenities. Sports and concert fans will love having the Canadian Tire Centre right at their doorstep. Home to the Ottawa Senators and touring musical acts, there are plenty of entertainment options every month.
