Jewish Federation of Ottawa

Through their collaborative community planning process and their Annual Campaign, the Federation raises and allocates funds to provide life-saving, life-changing and life-enhancing experiences for Jews in Ottawa and around the globe.

The Federation works to translate Jewish values into social action through four pillars: building, educating, helping and supporting.
