How will the organization benefit?
As a non-profit social enterprise, the Ottawa Tool Library (OTL) relies on contributions from a range of talented individuals to fulfill its mission of providing access to tools and skills throughout the local community. Volunteers are essential to permit the OTL to lend tools to its membership at minimal cost, permitting access to a broad range of tools. Our emphasis on access over ownership means more people use fewer tools and those tools used are often diverted from basements and landfills. Our members develop and exchange skills, exercise their creativity, and build themselves a more sustainable environment and community. Our volunteers apply what they know in maintaining our space and inventory, share their knowledge through workshops and mentoring, and connect and build networks throughout Ottawa's diverse maker communities. The OTL could never achieve its aims without the support of our many generous, dedicated and talented volunteers.
