Orleans

Orleans is one of Ottawa's fastest growing suburban districts, known for its welcoming atmosphere and character filled streets. Since becoming a part of the City of Ottawa on 2001, Orleans has continued to produce warm and welcoming high quality neighbourhoods. Just off the Ottawa River, the community is about 16 kms east of Ottawa's downtown core. The community is thought to have been named by its first postmaster. Orleans was an incorporated police village from 1922 to 1974 and was known as St. Joseph d'Orléans.

Experiencing rapid and constant growth since the 1970's, it has a sizeable French speaking population, and has many French based schools. In total there are two secondary schools and seven grade schools located in the community. The traditional centre of the area has been the Place d'Orleans shopping centre, a large shopping centre set just off the Queensway. There is also plenty of recreational space; plenty of parkland, as well as community centres complement the Elizabeth Manley skating rink at the large Orléans Sportsplex. There is a YMCA, as well as the Ray Friel Recreation Centre, a movie theatre, and plenty of bike paths. Easy access to the 417 means downtown is a ten minute drive away, and OC Transpo offers extensive service to the area.
