The kinds of things featured on Kijiji's Ottawa classifieds include new and pre-owned personal items such as clothing and jewelry; household items such as furniture, audio and electronic equipment; boats, bikes, cars and other vehicles; and pets. A real estate category lists homes for sale or rent in Ottawa, while a vacation rentals category offers vacations worldwide. The site also lists ads for services and jobs, swaps or trades, and free stuff, along with a community category.
The community category allows local organizations and individuals to post notices of interest to the local community, such as events and activities, ride-sharing opportunities, and classes. As of November 2015, the site has closed its personals ad category in response to feedback from the user community. However, the community category features a friendship and networking section on the community pages along with Long Lost Relationships and Missed Connections sections where people can place a range of personal ads.
The Kijiji Ottawa site typically carries more than 7 million classified ads. The best way to find a specific item or service is to use the search tools at the top of the home page. Customers can also register their details on the site to receive Kijiji alerts when selected ads are posted.
