We have detailed information for 6 Neighbourhoods in Chelsea!
The Municipality of Chelsea lies just to the north of downtown Ottawa/Gatineau within Canada's National Capital Region. It is a triangle-shaped municipality that includes much of the southern and eastern parts of Gatineau Park and is bordered on the east by the Gatineau River.
People come to the area drawn to its rural charm and to the many recreational opportunities available and because its only a mere 15 minute commute to downtown Ottawa/Gatineau. Skiing, golf, sailing, cycling, boating, hiking are all readily available within the municipality’s boundaries.
The municipality has a reputation for being environmentally responsible and was one of the first in Canada to ban the use of pesticides. While 60% of the area of the municipality consists of Gatineau Park, much of the rest of Chelsea is residential with mostly large lots, and tracts of undeveloped land. It has a distinctly rural feel. The population of Chelsea is almost evenly divided between anglophones and francophones and both English and French languages are in common use.
Part of the film Grey Owl was filmed on the Gatineau River. A number of regionally and nationally well-known musicians, filmmakers and artists live in Chelsea, including Ian Tamblyn, Richard Austin, Mike Beedell, Rebecca Mason, daughter of filmmaker and naturalist Bill Mason, and Reid McLachlan, among others.
