History[edit]

It was originally part of Osgoode Township but it became part of Ottawa in 2001. Originally called Osgoode Station, its name was shortened to Osgoode in 1962.

The community took its name from William Osgoode, the first Chief Justice of Upper Canada.[2]

Present day[edit]

Notable landmarks of the community include the Stuart Holmes Arena hockey, the Osgoode Community Centre and its surrounding recreation facilities, the local mall and numerous shops within the village.
