<HTML>i have same experience as yours. I think it needs TOEFL or GRE scores, at least TOEFL. and you should send your application more than half year before the term. Such as before april for the Autumn term. And I think if your background is good enough, leave ottawa to toronto or waterloo. And I am still trying to find job here, if failed, i will try that too.</HTML>
<HTML>It all depends on your background and your TOEFL ,GRE score. Just like applying for usa university. And I think ottawa university is not very good. But anyway,If I were you, Carleton U 's E&E is also good choice.
