Greely is a quickly growing rural community in Osgoode Ward in the southern end of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Prior to amalgamation in 2001, it was part of the Township of Osgoode. It has been a part of the City of Ottawa since.

Greely is home to a set of tight-knit and unique communities throughout the village. Most homes sit on ½ acre to 2-acre (8,100 m2) lots. Some developers offer condominium-like amenities such as pools, tennis courts, man-made lakes, beaches, and small neighbourhood community centres within their residential communities. The Greely Community Centre hosts meetings and activities for the entire rural town. Every year, they organize a Winter Carnival and a renowned Canada Day celebration.

Throughout the last eight years Greely has seen a 58.7% increase in the number of dwellings. Greely’s increasingly rapid growth can be attributed to its rural atmosphere and easy access to Ottawa’s urban centre. Furthermore, Greely presently has several large areas of undeveloped land within its boundaries. Greely’s boundaries currently contain enough land for approximately twenty-two years of residential growth based on current development patterns. Popoulation 9,049.

Oldest house: Built in 1800.
