History[edit]

Hull, (Lower Canada), on the Ottawa
Ottawa
River; at the Chaudier [sic] Falls, 1830, by Thomas Burrowes. Chaudière Falls
Chaudière Falls
and Bytown

are visible in the background.

The current city of Gatineau
Gatineau
is centred on an area formerly called Hull, the oldest European colonial settlement in the National Capital Region. This area was mostly not developed until after the American Revolutionary War, when the Crown made land grants to Loyalists for resettlement in Upper Canada. Hull was founded on the north shore of the Ottawa River
Ottawa River
in 1800 by Philemon Wright
Philemon Wright
at the portage around the Chaudière Falls
Chaudière Falls
just upstream (or west) from where the Gatineau
Gatineau
and Rideau rivers flow into the Ottawa. Wright brought his family, five other families, and twenty-five labourers[10] to establish an agricultural community. They considered the area a mosquito-infested wilderness. But soon after, Wright and his family took advantage of the large lumber stands and became involved in the timber trade. The original settlement was called Wrightstown, and was later renamed as Hull. In 2002, after amalgamation, it was part of a larger jurisdiction named the City of Gatineau. In 1820, before immigrants from Ireland and other parts of Great Britain arrived in great numbers, Hull Township had a population of 707, including 365 men, 113 women, and 229 children. The high number of men were related to workers in the lumber trade. In 1824, there were 106 families and 803 persons. During the rest of the 1820s, the population of Hull doubled, owing to the arrival of Ulster Protestants. By 1851, the population of the County of Ottawa
Ottawa
was 11,104, of which 2,811 lived in Hull Township. By comparison, Bytown had a population of 7,760 in 1851. By 1861, Ottawa
Ottawa
County had a population of 15,671, of which 3,711 lived in Hull Township. Gradually French Canadians also migrated to the Township; their proportion of the population increased from 10% in 1850, to 50% in 1870, and 90% in 1920.[11] The Gatineau
Gatineau
River, like the Ottawa
Ottawa
River, was a basic transportation resource for the draveurs, workers who transport logs via the rivers from lumber camps until they arrived downriver. (The Gatineau
Gatineau
River flows south into the Ottawa
Ottawa
River, which flows east to the St. Lawrence River near Montreal.) The log-filled Ottawa
Ottawa
River, as viewed from Hull, was featured on the back of the Canadian one-dollar bill; the paper money was replaced by a dollar coin (the "loonie") in 1987. The last of the dwindling activity of the draveurs on these rivers ended a few years later. Ottawa
Ottawa
was founded after Hull, as the terminus of the Rideau Canal. This was built under the command of Col. John By
John By
as part of fortifications and defences constructed after the War of 1812
War of 1812
against the United States. Originally named Bytown, Ottawa
Ottawa
was not designated as the Canadian capital until the mid-19th century, after the original parliament in Montreal
Montreal
was torched by a rioting mob of Anglo-Canadians on 25 April 1849. Its greater distance from the Canada–US border also made the new parliament less vulnerable to foreign attack. Nothing remains of the original 1800 settlement of Hull. The downtown Vieux-Hull sector was destroyed by a terrible fire in 1900; it also burnt down the original pont des Chaudières (Chaudière Bridge). The bridge was rebuilt to join Ottawa
Ottawa
to Hull at Victoria Island. In the 1940s, during World War II, Hull, along with various other regions within Canada, such as the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, and Île Sainte-Hélène, was the site of prisoner-of-war camps.[12] Hull's prison was identified only by a number, as were Canada's other war prisons.[12][13] The prisoners of war (POWs) were organized by nationality and status: civilian or military status.[12] In the Hull camp, POWs were mostly Italian and German nationals detained by the government as potential threats to the nation during the war. As a result of the Conscription Crisis of 1944, Canadians who had refused conscription were interned in the camp.[12] The prisoners were required to perform hard labour, which included farming and lumbering the land.[12] During the 1970s and early 1980s, the decaying old downtown core of Hull was redeveloped. Old buildings were demolished and replaced by a series of large office complexes. In addition some 4,000 residents were displaced, and many businesses uprooted along what was once the town's main commercial area.[14] On 11 November 1992, Ghislaine Chénier, Mayoress by interim for the city of Hull, unveiled War Never Again, a marble stele monument that commemorates the cost of war for the men, women and children of the city of Hull.[15] Amalgamation[edit]

Gatineau

As part of the 2000–06 municipal reorganization in Quebec, the five municipalities that constituted the Communauté urbaine de l'Outaouais were merged on 1 January 2002 to constitute the new city of Gatineau. They were:

Aylmer Buckingham Hull Gatineau Masson-Angers

Although Hull was the oldest and most central of the merged cities, the name Gatineau
Gatineau
was chosen for the new city. The main reasons given were that Gatineau
Gatineau
had more residents, and this name was strongly associated with the area: it was the name of the former county, the valley, the hills, the park and the main river within the new city limits. Some argued that the French name of Gatineau
Gatineau
was more appealing to the majority French-speaking residents. Since the former city of Hull represents a large area distinct from what was formerly known as Gatineau, some people refer to "Vieux Hull" .[citation needed] The name "Hull" was often informally used to refer to the entire urban area on the northern shore of the river facing Ottawa. In other areas of Quebec, the National Capital Region was often referred to as "Ottawa-Hull".[citation needed] After the 2003 election, the new Liberal government of Jean Charest passed Bill 9, which created a process by which former municipalities could be reconstituted. Contrary to Charest's election promise of full de-amalgamation, Bill 9 restored only selected powers to the de-merged cities (e.g., animal control, garbage pickup, local street maintenance, some cultural facilities). The bigger expenses (e.g., police, fire, main streets, expansion programs) and the majority of the taxes remained in the hands of urban agglomerations. These are controlled by the central merged city because their larger populations give them greater voting weight. 10% of the eligible voters in each former municipality would have to sign a "register" in order to hold a referendum on de-amalgamation. Residents of Aylmer, Buckingham, Hull and Masson-Angers all surpassed this threshold in seeking a referendum on de-merge. A simple majority of "yes" votes, based on a turnout of at least 35%, is needed to de-merge. All of the above jurisdictions had the required turnout, and all rejected the de-merger.[16]

Former Municipality # of Yes votes Yes vote (%) Total votes Turnout (%)

Aylmer 7,412 26.48 12,844 45.89

Buckingham 1,779 20.27 4,302 49.02

Hull 7,820 15.71 19,885 39.94

Masson-Angers 2,563 34.8 3,900 52.88

Economy[edit] A number of federal and provincial government offices are located in Gatineau, due to its proximity to the national capital, and its status as the main town of the Outaouais
Outaouais
region of Quebec. A policy of the federal government to distribute federal jobs on both sides of the Ottawa River
Ottawa River
led to the construction of several massive office towers to house federal civil servants in downtown Gatineau; the largest of these are Place du Portage
Portage
and Terrasses de la Chaudière, occupying part of the downtown core of the city. Some government agencies and ministries headquartered in Gatineau
Gatineau
are the Public Works and Government Services Canada, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, Environment Canada, Transportation Safety Board of Canada.[17]. The following federal government departments have their main offices in Gatineau:

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada

Canadian Heritage

Employment and Social Development Canada

Environment Canada
Canada
(includes offices of Parks Canada)

Industry Canada
Canada
(includes Competition Bureau, the Canadian Patent Office and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission)

Public Works and Government Services Canada

The following agencies have their main offices in Gatineau.

Transportation Safety Board (under Transport Canada) Passport Canada
Canada
(under Citizenship and Immigration Canada)

In addition to housing a significant portion of federal government offices, the city is also an important regional centre for the Outaouais
Outaouais
region. The city serves as the location for the Superior Court of the District of Gatineau, which encompasses all neighbouring municipalities. It also houses 2 of the region's major hospitals as well as numerous provincial colleges. Recreation[edit]

Filling the balloons in the park

Two important tourist attractions located in Gatineau
Gatineau
are the Canadian Museum of History and the Casino du Lac-Leamy. In August, the Casino hosts an international fireworks competition which opposes four different countries with the winner being awarded a Prix Zeus prize for the best overall show (based on several criteria) and can return in the following year. At the beginning of September, on Labour Day weekend, Gatineau
Gatineau
hosts an annual hot air balloon festival which fills the skies with colourful gas-fired passenger balloons. There are many parks. Some of them are well gardened playgrounds or resting spaces while others, like Lac Beauchamp Park, are relatively wild green areas which often merge with the woods and fields of the surrounding municipalities. Streams of all sizes run through these natural expanses. Most of the city is on level ground but the Northern and Eastern parts lie on the beginnings of the foothills of the massive Canadian Shield, or Laurentian Mountains. These are the " Gatineau
Gatineau
Hills", and are visible in the background of the companion picture. One of Gatineau's urban parks, Jacques Cartier Park, is used by the National Capital Commission
National Capital Commission
during the popular festival, Winterlude. Nightlife within the city of Gatineau
Gatineau
is mostly centered in the "Vieux-Hull" sector behind the Federal office complexes of downtown. The area features many bars and restaurants within a stone's throw from Ottawa. It is a popular spot for young Ontarians as the legal drinking age in Quebec
Quebec
is 18 (as opposed to Ontario's 19). Education[edit] The city contains a campus of the Université du Québec, the Université du Québec
Université du Québec
en Outaouais
Outaouais
(UQO). It is also the home of two provincial junior colleges (or CEGEPs): the francophone Cégep de l' Outaouais
Outaouais
and the anglophone Heritage College. There is also the private junior college Nouvelles-Frontières located on the administration site of UQO. The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has a campus in Gatineau. The main French-language school boards in Gatineau
Gatineau
are the Commission scolaire des Portages-de-l'Outaouais, the Commission scolaire au Coeur-des-Vallées and the Commission scolaire des Draveurs. There are also three private high schools : the all-girl Collège Saint-Joseph, and the Collège Saint-Alexandre
Collège Saint-Alexandre
and École secondaire Nouvelles-Frontières (high school). Primary and secondary education in English is under the supervision of the Western Quebec
Quebec
School Board. Transportation[edit] The Gatineau- Ottawa
Ottawa
Executive Airport is Gatineau's municipal airport, capable of handling small jets. There are Canada
Canada
customs facilities for aircraft coming from outside Canada, a car rental counter and a restaurant. The airport has a few regularly scheduled flights to points within Quebec, but most residents of Gatineau
Gatineau
use the nearby Ottawa
Ottawa
Macdonald–Cartier International Airport or travel to Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport
Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport
in Montreal. Ottawa
Ottawa
and Gatineau
Gatineau
have two distinct bus-based public transit systems with different fare structures, OC Transpo
OC Transpo
and the Société de transport de l'Outaouais. Tickets are not interchangeable between the two, however passes and transfers from one system to the other do not require payment of a surcharge on any routes. Many Gatineau
Gatineau
highways and major arteries feed directly into the bridges crossing over to Ottawa, but once there the roads lead into the dense downtown grid or into residential areas, with no direct connection to The Queensway. This difficulty is further magnified by the lack of a major highway on the Quebec
Quebec
side of the Ottawa
Ottawa
River connecting Gatineau
Gatineau
to Montreal, the metropolis of the province; most travellers from Gatineau
Gatineau
to Montreal
Montreal
first cross over to Ottawa, and use Ontario

highways to access Montreal. However, it is expected that since Autoroute 50 has been completed,[18] the new link between Gatineau
Gatineau
and the Laurentides

region is located in Gatineau
Gatineau
across from City Hall on the corner of Laurier and Hôtel-de-Ville. Most of the law firms that represent local businesses throughout the region are also based in Gatineau. Police service[edit] The 250-man Service de police de la Ville de Gatineau
Gatineau
provides day-to-day policing for the city, with other agencies such as the SQ and the RCMP assisting as necessary. They are also responsible for patrolling sections of the highways located within the city limits. The Service de police is equipped with a CID unit, marine unit, drugs unit, gang suppression unit, and a tactical unit (Groupe d'endiguement et d'arrestation à risque, or GEAR). Patrol officers are armed with Smith & Wesson M&P .40 calibre pistols. The Service de police uses the same vehicles as similar police forces throughout North America.

(Percentages may total more than 100% due to rounding and multiple responses). Immigration: The area is home to more than five thousand recent immigrants (i.e. those arriving between 2001 and 2006), who now comprise about two percent of the total population. 11% of these new immigrants have come from Colombia, 10% from China, 7% from France, 6% from Lebanon, 6% from Romania, 4% from Algeria, 3% from the United States and 3% from Congo.[25] Internal migration: Between 2001 and 2006 there was a net influx of 5,205 people (equivalent to 2% of the total 2001 population) who moved to Gatineau

City, 1,060 from Montreal, 545 from Saguenay, 315 from Toronto, 240 from Trois-Rivières, 225 from Kingston, and 180 from Sudbury.[26] Ethnocultural ancestries: Canadians were able to self-identify one or more ethnocultural ancestries in the 2001 census. (Percentages may therefore add up to more than 100%.) The most common response was Canadian / Canadien and since the term 'Canadian' is as much an expression of citizenship as of ethnicity these figures should not be considered an exact record of the relative prevalence of different ethnocultural ancestries. 43.1% of respondents gave a single response of Canadian / Canadien while a further 26.5% identified both Canadian / Canadien and one or more other ethnocultural ancestries. 10.4% of respondents gave a single response of French, 1.1% gave a single response of Portuguese, 1.0% gave a single response of Irish, 0.9% gave a single response of Lebanese, 0.8% gave a single response of English, 0.7% gave a single responses of Québécois and 0.7% gave a single response of North American Indian. According to Statistics Canada, counting both single and multiple responses, the most commonly identified ethnocultural ancestries were: 70.7% North American, 37.8% French, 14.3% British Isles, 4.5% Aboriginal, 4.0% Southern European, 3.8% Western European, 1.9% Arab, 1.7% Eastern European, 1.0% East and Southeast Asian, 0.8% African, 0.7% Latin, Central and South American, 0.7% Caribbean and 0.5% Northern European.
