That was larger than usual, but nothing worth fretting over.

Do quakes happen usually there (not necessarily like the West Coast or Japan, but...) in Ottawa? They are pretty much nonexistent in the Prairies
Earthquakes are pretty common in the Ottawa area. I have experienced many. Almost all are relatively minor. I remember the 1988 Grey Cup and there were comments that only an earthquake would prevent the Grey Cup from being held in Ottawa. The Friday evening before the Grey Cup, there was an earthquake to the point that I almost fled my house. There was no damage and Grey Cup proceeded as normal on an unusually mild November day.
One of the worst earthquakes in Eastern Ontario took place near Cornwall in 1944. That one caused significant damage.
The Citizen has a few maps, including one that shows the soil risk in different parts of Ottawa (it is Flash, so I don't know how to link to the specific map, but I'm sure it also exists on a government website.
