The main source of income in Ottawa is politics and immigration. We'll take your money.

I am buying cigarettes online. It comes to $30-$35 per carton for Marlboro including delivery. Usually they deliver within 2 weeks. Try at http://www.homeofcigarettes.com. Hopefully you will save a lot.

What is the main source of income in Ottawa and the GMT
#Lauren on Dec 23, 2013 :
Don’t forget that Ottawa is the capital of Canada and that is why prices here will be always higher that in other cities. But I’ve also heard that the cost of living in Ottawa is high in comparison to other places in the world! Can you imagine? Household accommodation costs for items such as apartment rent, house rent, property purchase, mortgage rate, and utilities are average in comparison to other international locations. Nevertheless, most people don’t like the city because of high cost of rent there in comparison to other cities.
