Our History


In 1990, Mayor Robert Ostler and Council were notified of a meeting that was to take place in Ottawa to discuss the concept of Community Foundations in Canada. This meeting was hosted by the Ottawa Community Foundation and its visionary Executive Director, Mr. Al Gamble. The gathering was funded co-operatively by the Vancouver Foundation (largest in Canada), Winnipeg Foundation (first in Canada) and Toronto Foundation, as well as the Ottawa Foundation.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
