Canal 111 Neighbourhood Guide
Canal 111 is located in Old Ottawa East.Old Ottawa East is one of the few pockets of suburbia still existing in downtown Ottawa. There are far fewer apartment buildings in the area, saving it from the concrete jungle reputation which many neighbouring areas seem to have. It is not completely cut off from the fun though. Residents looking to socialize with a livelier crowd can head down to Elgin Street which is only a few blocks away. The great thing about this is the party is unlikely to follow you down the quiet Main Street. People living here are able to have the best of both worlds; energetic pubs a few blocks away and a calm dock near Brantwood Park. Residents can also explore the area’s rich heritage simply by touring many of the old buildings which still stand. An example is The White House, built in the 1800s and used to host one of the first Catholic schools in Ottawa or the Town Hall.

Some townhouses share a sidewall, are two or three stories and might include a front and back entrance and yard. Similar units may be found that are stacked, run front to back and may still include multiple stories within the units. These units may or may not all have entrance at grade.
