History of Kanata Ontario

Like so many of the communities surrounding Ottawa, Kanata ON was an unincorporated city since 1978. As of 2001 Kanata was amalgamated into the City of Ottawa together with 10 other cities and townships. The area was known by Europeans as early as the 19th century, and for centuries home to the Ojibwe, Algonquin, and Potawatomi peoples. You can find this area of Ottawa easily just south of the Ottawa river, and is the western most suburb accessible from highway 417. To the southwest is Stittsville, and Barrhaven to the southeast. The city is served by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic School Board, and had a population of 117,304 during the 2016 census. Near Kanata Ontario, Ivonne Sanchez Beauty is proud to offer microblading, permanent makeup, and skincare services to residents and tourists.


Kanata has seen considerable growth and development since due to the influx of high-tech workers and the modernization of Kanata’s city centre. 

Kanata’s urban area began to expand in the 1970s and 1980s as its boundaries pushed into Nepean, Stissville, and Barrhaven. Visitors to Kanata and the City of Ottawa can visit the cenotaph in Village Green Memorial Park which was dedicated to those who provided military service.
