About

Telling stories about life and work in Canada’s National Capital Region, CapitalHistory.ca focuses on businesses and the people who made them. We tell stories about employees and employers, about customers and passers-by, about buildings and neighbourhoods.

We will be rolling out a new story every two months, offering locals and visitors diverse and exciting histories of our city. Featuring interviews, video clips, and photographs, CapitalHistory.ca will engage you with the history of Ottawa in a way you have never experienced it before. Watch out for our logo: it signals that this site has a story to tell!
