Federation has four awards to recognize our community’s outstanding volunteers. Recipients are awarded annually at our Annual General Meeting in June.
The Jewish Federation of Ottawa has several specialized initiatives aimed at ensuring everyone in our community can enjoy meaningful Jewish experiences. Above our regular annual allocations to beneficiary agencies, Federation also has a strategic funding stream intended to help build affinity and Jewish identity; inspire Jewish opportunities for engagement; and increase Jewish communal reach across the city. We help realize these goals by celebrating and connecting volunteers and funding projects that fuel creative and innovative ideas.
