A city of a million: Ottawa by the numbers
What does Ottawa look like? CBC crunched the numbers
Ottawa hit a major population milestone this week.
The city announced Tuesday that Ottawa has reached one million people.
CBC crunched Statistics Canada's numbers from the 2016 census to show you what the city looks like when you break it down.
Degrees and diplomas
Ottawa is full of highly educated individuals.
More than half the adult population has some form of post-secondary education. The most popular area of study is business, management and public administration.
All that education adds up to a median full-time employment income of $65,140. That's $10,000 higher than the provincial median.
A diverse city
More than 70 per cent of Ottawans speak English most often at home and roughly 10 per cent speak French. But there are a lot of other languages frequently used in living rooms across the city.
Arabic, Mandarin, Spanish, Cantonese and Farsi are the top five non-official languages listed in the 2016 census. Vietnamese, Somali and Russian are next on the list.
This is just a snapshot of the city, but it gives you a glimpse into the one million people who live here.
