A tornado developed about 10 kilometres southeast of Gatineau Airport, Quebec early Sunday evening.
The tornado moved east along the Ottawa River before coming ashore on the Ontario side.
In the suburban Ottawa neighbourhood of Orléans, strong winds brought down trees and removed shingles on many homes with one person reportedly injured.
A thunderstorm also produced 2 centimetre hail in the area.
Environment Canada says the tornado was a low end EF-1 suggesting peak winds of 135 km/h and had a path length of at least 25 kilometres.
