The University of Ottawa is the largest bilingual (English-French) university in the world. Located in the heart of Canada’s capital, we have ready access to the great institutions of our country.
University of Ottawa gives their students the opportunity to study, live and play in English, French or both. They offer students collaborative research projects and student-exchange programs through some 140 bilateral agreements with sister universities in close to 50 countries. U of O offer a multicultural environment by welcoming students and professors from virtually every continent. They encourage them to gain new experiences by taking part in the many international, government and cultural events staged in their own backyard, the nation's capital. At the University of Ottawa, they want their graduates to be ready not only to face a career, but to face the world.
In lectures and laboratories, as well as outside of class time, professors are always available to their students and maintain a strong one-on-one relationship due to the relatively small class sizes of the department.The University of Ottawa, founded in 1848, is the oldest and largest bilingual University in North America. It is a comprehensive, research-intensive, cosmopolitan, first-tier university offering a wide variety of programs in most disciplines-in English and French-to nearly 25,000 students from a variety of cultural heritages, many of whom come from other countries on all five continents.

I recommend you not to go to U of O, it is not at all a good school with less facilities. The faculty is also not good.
