Signature events

The Ottawa Mission is proud to host two signature events each year that help raise funds to support our community members in need.


Coldest Night of the Year

The Ottawa Mission has been participating in this National event for many years. The Coldest Night of the Year is a moment where tens of thousands of Canadians step outside the warmth and comfort of their homes to participate in a fundraising walk, to support people experiencing homelessness and hunger. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, February 25 2023 IN PERSON at the SHAW Center. Participants will gather for either a 2km or 5km walk around the downtown core and enjoy chili after!

Blue Door at your Door, presented by Caivan

This one-hour telethon presents some of Canada’s most talented musicians, and shares stories of hope from those touched by The Mission’s support services. You’ll also have the opportunity to order a Canadian inspired meal prepared by our Food Services Training Program Students (FSTP) delivered right to your door!

Stay tuned for details about next year’s event!

Fundraise your way!

The work we do would not be possible without the support of our community, that’s why we also offer an online peer to peer fundraising tool so you can share your passion for giving back. It’s as easy as 1,2,3!
