The Jewish Federation of Ottawa is the central fundraising and planning organization of our Jewish community. Our mission is to advance and promote an exceptional quality of Jewish life.

Every year, millions of dollars raised through the Annual Campaign are distributed to programs run by our more than 20 partner agencies that deliver educational, cultural and social services locally, nationally and internationally. Through these programs we strive to build community, educate Jewishly, help the vulnerable, and support Israel.
