Not many companies in the Gatineau-Ottawa area offer rental of laundry units (washer and dryer). While some companies will charge you outrageous prices, there is only one company I found that offers reasonable prices for rental of washer and dryer.
Electro-Loc offers rental of laundry combo (washer and dryer) for less than CAD $50 per month. As per the reviews, you get a brand new washer/dryer for rental when you use their service. Additional service and tax charges apply so give them a call and confirm if they have any specials going on.
You can give them a call at (819) 410-2575
Depending on the time of the year, it can take a month for your appliances to be delivered by the company, so I highly recommend that you make your reservation as soon as possible.
Should you be renting an appliance in Ottawa-Gatineau?
Well, that really depends. Are you only in the area for a few months? If so, then it makes sense to rent an appliance. However, if you are staying for a long period, I would recommend that you buy an appliance. You can get a used appliance with a 90-day guarantee and save quite a bit of money!
Never go for rent-to-own options!
I found that there are certain companies that offer you to rent an appliance and if you complete the lease period, you get to own the appliance. DO NOT DO IT! It usually ends up costing multiple times more than if you had just purchased the appliance upfront.

If you are renting an apartment/condo, you can try asking your landlord/apartment if they can provide you with appliances as that might turn out to be cheaper sometimes!
Also, if there is a previous tenant, in some instances they might be willing to just sell you the appliances that they have which could turn out to be a very nice deal!
