Boasting one of the world’s most highly regarded health care systems, the Ottawa Region is the perfect place to expand and advance your career. Ottawa residents enjoy a high quality of life, low crime rates, environmental cleanliness, first-rate public services, safe neighbourhoods and world-class education.

Often described as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the scenic Ottawa Region offers you a wide range of urban and big city attractions, situated within minutes of many outdoor adventures and wilderness activities. If it is a healthy lifestyle you seek, you will feel right at home with Ottawa’s wealth of parks, forests, waterways and open spaces. There are 532-square-kilometres of green space surrounding the urban core, while some of the area’s best beaches, golf courses, ski hills and whitewater rafting spots are only minutes away. And in the wintertime, the 7.8-kilometre Rideau Canal transforms into the world’s longest skating rink.

If it is culture you are looking for, then Ottawa has it all. With the highest concentration of museums in Canada, Ottawa offers the National Gallery, the Canadian War Museum and the Canada Science and Technology Museum, just to name a few. Home to some of Canada’s finest historical sites, Ottawa is also where you’ll find Rideau Hall, the official residence of the Queen’s representative in Canada, and the Parliament buildings, Canada’s seat of government. And there’s always a festival going on, with Winterlude, the Canadian Tulip Festival, the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, Cisco Systems Bluesfest and Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival all happening right here.

By choosing to work at Queensway Carleton Hospital, you will be electing to live in a city that is recognized world-wide for its high quality of life and elevated standard of living. Offering great living accommodations in close proximity to the hospital and easy access to two major highways, the 417 (east/west) and the 416 (north/south), QCH couldn’t be better situated. And our plans to expand to meet the needs of our rapidly growing community will only contribute to Ottawa’s reputation for providing world-class health care.
