vanier ONTARIO – VANIER north ottawa
Welcome to Vanier North! Vanier Ontario was once a fully Francophone city on its own, is now an ever gentrifying neighbourhood in the city of Ottawa. This neighbourhood experienced a significant time of poverty and suffering after the second World War, which helped establish its cultural reputation and became a powerful symbol of Franco-Ontarian culture. Vanier North borders the trendy Beechwood Avenue, busy Montreal Road, and two large cemeteries. This northern part of the village is known for its quaint residential streets lined with older homes, a cluster of apartment towers near the Rideau River Parkway, and new condo developments along Beechwood Avenue, all add to the mix of this unique neighbourhood. With Vanier North bordering on the prestigious and very sought after neighbourhood of New Edinburg and it’s close proximity to downtown, it is quickly becoming a very sought after neighbourhood for investors and homeowners alike. The residents who live here are within a walking distance to coffee shops, grocery stores, and specialty shops; those walks are made more interesting by historical landmarks sprinkled throughout that depict the history of this changing neighbourhood through over 35 murals spread throughout, while the Rideau River offers walking paths, green space, and close proximity to downtown Ottawa proper. Let’s make our way into the historic neighbourhood of Vanier North in Vanier Ontario.
