About the Morning Social

One day, one cause,
one family.

It’s the in-person networking event of the season.

Our BGC Ottawa Family will highlight the positive impact of community groups, local businesses and philanthropic leaders in our city who help transform thousands of young lives. Together, we will celebrate young people who show resilience, determination and grit. We will honour regular people who do good in our community, while raising funds to help those who need it most.

We'll also share a cup of coffee and a light breakfast – not to mention countless smiles and a few good laughs – while supporting the important work of BGC Ottawa in our community.

A Message From

Our Chair

For 100 years, BGC Ottawa has been there for our community, thanks to your help.

We provide children and youth with a safe place between the realities of home life and the pressures of school – a place of positivity and belonging where they can play, create, socialize with peers and learn what it takes to become their best selves.

Each decade, our team has worked hard to meet the changing needs of our growing city and its young people. We started out offering woodworking and boxing in the 1920s; today, we serve 5,000 young people with FREE life-changing programs and critical services in 31 neighbourhoods.

The Club provides safe, supportive places where kids and teens of all backgrounds can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, and develop confidence and skills for life.

Inside the walls of our four Clubhouses and phenomenal overnight camp, Camp Smitty, you will see a family. Our Members are truly a part of something wonderful. They are heard, seen and loved. They are accepted for who they are the minute they walk through the doors. Instantly, they became a part of our BGC Ottawa Family.

On May 16, join our family as we highlight the positive impact of community groups, local businesses and philanthropic leaders in our city who help transform thousands of young lives. Together, we will celebrate young people who show resilience, determination and grit. We will honour regular people who do good in our community, while raising funds to help those who need it most. We can’t wait to see you there!
