Maintenant le grand Gatineau depuis sa fusion. Gatineau a plus de 200 000 habitants et regroupe les anciennes villes suivantes : Gatineau, Hull, Aylmer, Masson-Anger et Buckingham.

Évidemment, je parle de ma ville en tant qu'habitante et non en tant qu'experte!

J'habite à Gatineau depuis 9 ans et j'adore! C'est une ville de grosseur moyen qui offre les services et divertissements des grosses sans en être une. On peut encore y retrouver des coins tranquilles sans avoir nécessairement à se taper une heure de route soirs et matins.

Gatineau est situé, géographiquement, à côté d'Ottawa. Donc, nous partageons plusieurs activités et festivals avec la Capitale. Il y a le festival de Blues, le Bal de neige, le festival des montgolfières, le festival des tulipes,etc. Pour ne nommer que ceux-là.



Gatineau is now much larger since its fusion. Gatineau has more than 200 000 inhabitants and gathers the old following cities: Gatineau, Hull, Aylmer, Masson-Anger and Buckingham.

Obviously, I speak about my city as a citizen and not as expert!

I have lived in Gatineau for 9 years and I adore! It is a town of medium size which offers the services and entertainments of a big city without being one. One can find quiet corners without having to drive for hours on the road mornings and evening.

Gatineau is located, geographically, beside Ottawa. Therefore, we share several activities and festivals with the Capital. To mention just a few we have the Blues Fest., Winterlude, Festival des Mopngolfières and also the Tulip Festival.

Needs a bit about French. My understanding is once you cross the river from Ottawa you're pretty much on your own if you don't know French. The impression I get is it's not as bilingual as neighbor Ottawa. 20:09, 12 November 2015 (EST)
