We provide year-round seminars, outreaches, training and more to those who join us. Located at the Bronson Centre, feel free to browse our schedule and join us for an upcoming event!



Our mission is to provide essential services to seniors from Ethiopian and Eritrean communities in Ottawa and its environs. These services are entirely delivered by volunteers from the community who offer time, expertise and resources. 



To come together and have time for tea and coffee at least once a month. We hope to encourage members to participate in various programs and build the community. We aim to encourage each other and strengthen the relationships amongst members in the group. Our main goal is to make this group a home away from home.
