In the opinion of this weather geek

There weren't any tornados in the Ottawa area.  Based on my observations of the conditions and viewing of pictures in news media like the one below from Barrhaven, I am fairly certain that what was seen are primarily low, fast moving shelf clouds looking like tornadoes due to perspective.   And any damage was primarily from straight line winds.

I was there in the Grand Valley tornado of '85 so I know what tornado producing weather looks like.
