All across Canada – and especially in Ottawa – excitement is building for the official celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. At The Ottawa Mission we are proud and thankful that we have been helping the homeless in our community for 111 of those 150 years.
As part of the festivities taking place throughout the Nation’s Capital, we were honoured to be gifted with a display space at Inspiration Village in the Byward Market. We took this opportunity to depict the legacy of The Mission, and to show with a timeline how we have grown and evolved over the years to meet the changing needs of homeless and hurting people in the community. Inspiration Village runs until the end of September. We hope you have a chance to drop by.
For Canada’s 150th we also issued a Special Edition of our newsletter to mark the occasion – we hope you enjoy it.
As we all celebrate this great milestone in Canada’s history, and The Mission’s 111 years of serving people in need, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has supported our work over the years through donations and volunteering. Your kindness and compassion is overwhelming, and we simply could not do what we do without you.
Happy Canada Day everyone!
