Ottawa Neighbourhoods

"The ONS Neighbourhood Boundaries were created by the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS) to analyse population statistics and are not indicative of actual neighbourhood limits.  Neighbourhood refers to an inhabited area delineated by social and physical boundaries. ONS neighbourhood boundaries were derived based on census tracts, physical and demographic similarities, physical barriers (e.g. waterways, highways, etc.), maps used by the real estate profession (e.g. the Ottawa Multiple Listing Service), consultations with community stakeholders, as well as fieldwork by ONS researchers."

108 neighbourhood boundaries are included in the shapefile, from Barrhaven to Woodvale.
