To split hairs if you use the same license as Ottawa is using which is
based on the TB Open Data license except it changes the wording slightly to
reflect a municipality you should be fine but as Stewart comments it does
need a formal approval by the legal working group.

The TB license is available in English and French and I have a very strong
suspicion that the Ottawa one is as well although I think the English
version is the one formally approved.

Alessandro.alasia canada.ca at Stats Canada has been working with Open Data
and municipalities on their buildings project and may be a useful contact.

Have fun, it took five years to sort out the licensing to be able to import
the Ottawa bus stops but the heavy lifting has been done.
