Thank you for the link to the data. The link to the license on that page
returns error 404. archive.org has an archieved version of that page
from October 2016 but it would be better if their open data portal
contained working links to the license texts.

You are in touch with them, aren't you? Could you please ask them to fix
that broken link.

Please note that this is not a show-stopper.

The license (http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/get-know-your-city/open-data)
linked from the wiki page contains the phrase "for any lawful purpose".
Is it compatible to OSM? I don't know if it is compatible, I haven't
looked if this issue has been solved or is still open. There was some
discussion about licenses with such phrases on Legal-talk mailing list
some months ago.

Best regards
