ottawa: Where are the next hot spots in Ottawa Real estate? - 10/16/16 06:06 AM
As a realtor with more than 30 years of experience in the Ottawa area, I’ve seen a lot of changes in our city, including the dramatic transformations of neighbourhoods that at one time were not at the top of homebuyers’ lists of choice destinations.
I can remember that early in my career, for example, I often had a difficult time persuading clients to have a look at homes in a quiet and tree-lined neighbourhood known as Westboro.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, if you were going to see a movie at the now defunct Elmdale Theatre on Wellington Street near Parkdale and … (2 comments)

The Safety Authority, responsible for improving electrical safety in Ontario, is conducting a spring campaign to raise awareness of the importance of hiring a licensed electrical contractor for projects … (1 comments)
