Census 2016: Ottawa jobs and how we travel to them

By Elise Von Scheel, CBC News Ottawa, November 30, 2017

People in the National Capital Region are more educated and spending more time getting to work than the average Canadian, according to newly released census data.

Statistics Canada has released employment and education data for 2016 for the country, including the Ottawa-Gatineau census metropolitan area — which includes Ottawa, Gatineau and surrounding municipalities like Cantley, Chelsea and Clarence-Rockland.

In Ottawa-Gatineau it takes workers about 42 minutes by public transit or 25 minutes by car, on average. If you walk or cycle, you're looking at 18 minutes.
