Why Minto

Building homes, communities, and trust in Ottawa for over 60 years.

With over 60 years as a premier Ottawa home builder, our goal has always been to create beautifully designed homes that are sustainably built in Minto communities, to meet the needs of families at all stages of life for years to come.

At Minto, we've made it our mission to inspire homeowners every day. Our quality craftsmanship is recognized industry-wide, but more importantly, it's recognized by our customers when they step into their new beautifully built, and superbly designed Minto home. Minto homes are sustainably built to lower their environmental impact and provide homeowners with a home that is healthier, more comfortable, and more energy efficient.

  • “For a lot of homeowners, a new Minto home is their dream home. It's where they're going to bring their first baby home, where they'll have graduation parties, where they'll celebrate milestones around the dining room table, and create memories for years to come.”

Each one of our dozens of communities across Ottawa has been master-planned to bring the best quality of life to all our residents — from the streetscapes to our enhanced parks and preserved green spaces, a Minto community is designed for beautiful living.

When you choose Minto for your new home, you're choosing more than just a homebuilder — you're choosing a trusted partner to help you along every step of your home buying journey.
