Ottawa's real estate market has had a good year. The City has seen some great growth in the job sector as well as an influx of immigration. In turn, this has caused the Ottawa rental market to also see some increase. Rental units in the City of Ottawa has seen lower than usual inventory which has made rentals more sought after and more expensive.
The arrival of new companies to Ottawa such as Amazon in the East end or Shopify in Ottawa's downtown core has brought in more labour force that is looking for a place to live, work and play.
Shopify's two downtown offices in Ottawa are located in the Centre Town neighbourhood which has many modern and recently built condo towers. Employees of Shopify often prefer to be in close proximity to work as well as the downtown core to experience all that Ottawa has to offer.
