The recently redeveloped CF Rideau Centre covers all of your shopping needs under one roof. Originally opened in 1983, the mall, which sees over 20 million visitors annually, stretches over three floors and contains around 170 stores. A revitalization project, which commenced in 2013, has seen the addition of a three-level underground parking garage and a large dining hall, which ranges from fine dining to more casual fare.

  • It was to be a channel for military use. Today it has become a place for dating, hanging out with family and playing sports. However, the engineering work still impresses by technique and by cost. Beautiful by day, romantic at night.

  • Bigger isn't always better. This is one of the biggest malls in Canada, but it is a tad claustrophobic. There is never enough parking. The ceilings are quite low considering the size of the mall. Even then, it is overcrowded on most days. Access to and from the mall to the parking is very difficult to figure out. If you park at Level 3 you have to go up to Level 4 to find the elevator to Level 3 again. But, what this mall is good at is its shops. You will find an exceptional variety of high quality shops and restaurants. All the staff is friendly and the products in each and every shop are top quality. Unless you want to actually go shopping and have something in mind to buy, I would not recommend a visit.
  • Lots of store that are to expensive. But with the opening of Simons and other store, I have a reason to shop at Rideau. Great customer service at the Simons and Disney Store has well. Will be back
  • Rideau Centre just expaned on Aug 11th 2016, with now area featuring Simons, H&M etc, it's definately worth cheching out.
  • Simons that opened in August 2016. It's awesome ! There's clothes, hones stuff ansmd a great cafe with a nice view. Prices are cheap to expensive
  • Great stores that you can't find anywhere close by. Rideau centre is a lot better than the st Laurent mall near by. The mall is kept very clean. Only problem was the signage could be confusing if you're not from Ottawa, especially getting back to the parking lot.
