WORKING TOGETHER FOR A COMMON PURPOSE
Founded in 1917, Kiwanis Ottawa is one of the most established and most active community service clubs in Canada. We’ve founded and supported many esteemed programs for children and youth, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa and the Kiwanis Music Festival.
Our members come from many different backgrounds, from business owners and doctors, to educators and bureaucrats, and many more. We are a group of dedicated men and women guided by our strong moral values, working together with a common purpose: one child and one community at a time.
