Thanks for visiting us regarding apartment rentals in Ottawa, Nepean, Kanata, Barrhaven, Vanier, Orleans and all the other great locations in and around town. We have tried to make the website as user friendly and affordable as possible. As you probably know we do more than apartments in Ottawa we provide listing place for apartment sublets in Ottawa, rooms with or without board here in Ottawa - essentially a directory for any housing needs in the nation's capital. We have provided you with some of our most frequenly asked questions to help while you surf our site. Feel free to drop us a line anytime if you need more help!

How is different than all the other rental websites out there or the newspapers?

Great question! Although there are a lot of sites out there we feel we differ in many, many ways. First, our prices are rock bottom starting at only $9.99 (plus tax) per month! Did you know that it could cost up to $200.00 for three days in the Ottawa Citizen classified section? We offer live help directly on our website through text chat. When you call you are speaking directly to the owner of the company! That's right the 613.265.9967 number is our owner's personal, direct line! We do not have any logins and passwords to remember either! We are locally operated right here in Ottawa as well so we know the city! We offer exclusive discounts through Avis Rent A Car to help with your move complete with no purchase necessary! We often run promotions with local businesses where you listing virtually becomes free!

Sure there are other sites but with all this here - do you really need to go somewhere else?

Why when I call do I get City Lights Entertainment? Have I called the right number?

Yes you do! City Lights Entertainment owns as well as the entire Network. and the was started by musicians looking to sublet their apartments before going on tour.

Does have any apartments in Ottawa for rent? Do you own any apartments in Ottawa?

Oh man do we wish! At this point we are simply a directory or listing services for Ottawa apartments for rent and more.

How much does it cost to post on and how long do you run your listings for?

Your basic listing (no photo, unlimited words) is only $9.99 (plus tax) for the full 30 days! A listing with a photo is only $14.99 for the entire month and you can add more photos for only $2.49 each!

As a landlord can I save myself time and effort by posting my rental application directly to your site?

Yes! We are one of the only directories where landlords can actually post their rental applications for download!

Why are there so few listings on your site?

We actually have a lot more people visit us looking for a place to live than we do posting. Last month we had 150 unique visitors a day on our website so, in order to fulfil everyone's needs we are also a conduit for renting an apartment in Ottawa. We actually advertise our competitors through Google ads. We want to provide you with the best opportunity to find your next place to live!

How do I pay?

As a rule of thumb we use Paypal for payment. Paypal is the Internet's leader in credit card security and is owned by Ebay. For more information on Paypal please visit

What if I don't have a credit card or I don't have a Paypal account? Am I out of luck?

Absolutely not! We do accept certified cheques and money orders. At this time we do accept personal cheques due to some bad experiences.

Where do I send payment to?

Please send all payments (outside of Paypal) to City Lights Entertainment, 1845 Baseline Road, Suite 913, Ottawa Ontario Canada, K2C 3K4

I have submitted my listing why do I not see it yet on the site?

In order for us to strictly monitor the content that is uploaded to the site, your listing is emailed to us and we upload it manually. We do this to eliminate spammers, people posting inappropriate or offensive material. We want to ensure that the site is kept clean and used properly.

Once my listing is up can I make changes to it?

Again, in order to keep our prices down we generally can not make changes to your listing. Having said this we have been known to make exceptions so by all means email us at and we will do our best, we just can't make any guarantees.

I love your message board so much I signed up but my account was never activated, why?

Well, do to the overwhelming amount of spammers on the board, we require that everyone lists their city as Ottawa. Even if you don't live here, please enter Ottawa. This way we know the registeration was legit. Otherwise, we simply delete the account and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Do you have a 1-800 number?

In order to keep our costs as low as possible - some of our competitors charge over $50.00 a month, we do not have a 1-800 number at time. You are encourage to call our parent company City Lights Entertainment here in Ottawa though at 613.686.1179 if you have any other questions!
