Where does our name come from?

In Ottawa during the late 1800’s, the area that spans the east side of the Rideau River from Riverside and Walkley over to St. Laurent Blvd and up to Vanier was called Junction Gore.


This area is now known as Alta Vista, which is where you will find our workshop! The name Junction Gore comes from the locality being seated at the meeting of the two rivers (Rideau and Ottawa) with gore meaning a triangular piece of land.
