The Linux Symposium is held annually at the Ottawa Congress Centre in Ottawa, Canada.
The Ottawa Congress Centre is directly attached to the Rideau Centre Shopping Mall. The Byward Market is just across Rideau St. and is the home to many of the best restaurants, pubs, coffee houses, and clubs in Ottawa.
Ottawa is the capital of Canada and the country's fourth largest municipality, as well as the second largest city in the province of Ontario. It was created in 2001 when the City of Ottawa was amalgamated with the surrounding municipalities that with it comprised the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. It is located in the Ottawa Valley on the eastern edge of the province of Ontario, 400 kilometres (250 mi) north-east of Toronto and 190 kilometres (120 mi) west of Montreal. Ottawa lies on the banks of the Ottawa River, a major waterway that forms the boundary between Ontario and Quebec.
Ottawa is home to a wealth of national museums, official residences, government buildings, memorials and heritage structures. Federal buildings in the National Capital Region are managed by the Public Works Canada, while most of the federal lands in the Region are managed by the National Capital Commission or NCC.
