Do you know of a community event that we should list here, or are you involved in a charitable organization and looking to get the word out about a fundraising event? If so, please contact Lael Morgan at so we can post it on our Community Guide! 


Special Olympics Ontario - Greater Ottawa is looking for fun, friendly, motivated, and engaged volunteers to help coach or supervise at some of our various weekly programs throughout the year. We are currently looking for volunteers and coaches for our Fall/Winter season in a number of sports. The time commitment varies by sport, but typically involves roughly 3 hours a week, plus an average of one competition/tournament a year. Sport technical knowledge is secondary to strong communication, patience, and attitude. At the moment, our biggest need is for volunteers to assist with the 5-pin Bowling Program at West Park Lanes, which takes place on Monday nights from 4:30 to 6:30pm, but there is also a need for coaches across many sports, including basketball, rhythmic gymnastics, floor hockey, badminton, and more!
