Come volunteer as a group with Ottawa Community Housing in one of our outdoor building projects!

OCH is the largest social housing provider in Ottawa. OCH provides approximately 15,000 homes to 32,000 tenants including seniors, parents, children, couples, singles, and persons with special needs within communities across the city of Ottawa housing a diverse population of varying languages, ethnicities, and cultures.

Our building projects make a difference in our tenant’s community outdoor spaces. Your group will take part in one of many building projects that may include building benches, flower boxes, picnic tables and more. Your team’s work will contribute to the overall look and feel of our tenants’ outdoor spaces. We make it easy – all materials and tools will be provided. Drinks and food will also be provided depending on the length of the volunteer event.

Our outdoor building projects take place between the months of May – October.

In addition to feeling a sense of purpose, our volunteer events are great activities for team building while contributing to a great cause.
