Millennials on the move

Last fall, two young couples bought houses and moved on to our street.

Turns out, they’re both from the Greater Toronto Area. They were drawn to Ottawa because their million-dollar budgets got them much more house here.

A recent report shows these new neighbours are part of a larger trend: Ottawa is now the top destination by net inflow for millennials moving within Canada.

The Ryerson Centre for Urban Research and Land Development study says that, between July 2018 and July 2019, 3,100 millennials moved to Ottawa – more than any other area in the country.

Housing, employment, and overall livability are all drawing the 23- to 38-year-old set to Ottawa in droves.

If you’re a millennial considering a move here, we can help acquaint you with the hottest neighbourhoods, introduce you to places to further your pastimes and personal interests, and, yes, show you where to find Ottawa’s best avocado toast, craft beers, and brunches.

We know Ottawa. And if you’re looking to build your best life here, we’d like to help. Get in touch today.
