Located in southern Ontario and nestled against the province of Quebec lies Ottawa, Canada's capital city. Home to the Canadian federal government as well as a plethora of national museums and institutions, historic sites, monuments, and festivals, Ottawa is a city known for history, arts and culture, education, science and technology, and diversity.

With more than one-quarter of Ottawa's million-plus residents being newcomers to Canada, multiculturalism is a point of pride and a way of life in the national capital region. Besides English, French, and Indigenous Canadian Languages, many other languages and dialects flourish across the Ottawa-Gatineau metropolitan area, making it a vibrant and heterogeneous community. On a walk through downtown Ottawa, you’re likely to hear multiple languages spoken with enthusiasm.

What does Ottawa's multilingual landscape mean for communication across various industries and settings? It means that high-quality translation services are key to breaking down language barriers and promoting natural communication seamlessly and with precision. A vast number of professional and personal interactions rely on superior language services, and CanTalk can provide tailor-made solutions for any and every circumstance.

At CanTalk, our professional interpreters are highly qualified, certified, trained, and vetted. They’re experienced in a wide range of settings and fields and are prepared to assist you in communicating at a moment's notice.

Ottawa Languages & Key Sectors


With a population of just over 1 million people, Ottawa is the fourth largest city in Canada. Situated at the confluence of the Ottawa and Rideau rivers in southern Ontario, it borders Gatineau, Quebec, and is at the heart of the Ottawa-Gatineau metropolitan area (population approaching 1.5 million). It's also Canada's capital city.

Ottawa is the political centre of Canada and is a city renowned for national museums and monuments such as the National Gallery, the Canadian Museum of Civilization, and the National War Memorial. In addition, it's home to several post-secondary institutions, a thriving arts scene, and more than 35 annual festivals. Ottawa has the highest density of residents with PhDs of anywhere in Canada and is a well-known hub for science and engineering. It's considered to have the highest standard of living in the nation while still offering affordable living options.

Nearly one-quarter of Ottawa's residents are newcomers to Canada. This, combined with the fact that English, French, and Indigenous Canadian languages are all prevalent in the capital region, makes Ottawa a highly multicultural and multilingual metropolitan centre. After English and French, some of Ottawa's most spoken languages include Chinese, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and German.


Language services in Ottawa are vital to the flow of daily life. From personal interactions to commerce, industry, and political affairs, accurate interpretation and translation services remove language barriers and allow Ottawa residents to communicate, collaborate, and build meaningful connections with one another. Tourists, newcomers, students, and long-time residents alike are increasingly aware of the phenomenal value of seamlessly integrated language services.

At CanTalk, we have long understood that the world is no longer language independent; it's language interdependent. And nowhere is this reality more evident than in the city of Ottawa.

While virtually any industry can benefit from superior translation and interpretation services, Ottawa's major sectors are where CanTalk finds its services in the highest demand. These sectors include telecommunications technology, aerospace and defence, tourism, diplomacy, life sciences, software, clean technologies, immigrant services, digital media, and more.
