Gloucester Jobs and Employment
The Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) is headquartered in Gloucester, providing many employment opportunities in close proximity to its residents. Gloucester is currently a major transit hub for the city, and the first phase of Ottawa’s Light Rail Transit project extends to Gloucester, making it easy for commuters to travel west to Ottawa’s downtown.
Is Gloucester A Safe Neighbourhood?
Gloucester’s proximity to downtown has lent itself to an increased crime rate compared to other areas in the city. However, Gloucester has many active community associations, like the Beacon Hill Community Association, which work to make the various neighbourhoods within Gloucester more safe and secure.
The community is home to the Gloucester Splash Wave Pool, a unique recreational facility, and is adjacent to the Pine View Municipal Golf Course. A large movie theatre is housed in Gloucester, as is the Canada Science and Technology Museum.
