ABOUT THE CITY
Canada's capital is full of things to explore! Take the time to stroll or skate along the Rideau Canal, grab a beavertail in the market, or explore the grounds of parliament. The nearby Byward market offers plenty of options for late-night bites, meals and snacks.
The O-train offers a direct connection between campus and the Via Rail station at Tremblay.
