Encyclopedia > National Capital Region (Canada)

The National Capital Region is an official federal designation for the Canadian capital of Ottawa, Ontario, the neighbouring city of Gatineau, Quebec and the surrounding area. Also known as Ottawa-Gatineau (or previously Ottawa-Hull), the National Capital Region has a total population of 1,130,761 [1] (2006), and consists of an area of 5,318.36 square kilometres that straddles the boundary between the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.

The National Capital Region is not a separate political jurisdiction, although the National Capital Commission is heavily involved in political, cultural and land use planning matters in both cities. Proposals have sometimes been made to separate the National Capital Region from its two respective provinces, and transform it into a separate administrative area, such as the District of Columbia or the Australian Capital Territory. Such proposals have never come close to implementation, and there does not currently appear to be any political will to pursue this option. The National Capital Commission (NCC) is a federal commission that administers the federally owned lands and buildings in Canadas National Capital Region, including Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Quebec. ... ...

A census metropolitan area, or CMA is a Canadian census subdivision comprising a large urban area (known as the urban core) and adjacent areas (known as urban and rural fringes) that have a high degree of social and economic integration with the urban core. ...
