Volunteer Ottawa is planning to hold our courses in person, while respecting Public Health directives regarding allowable group size and physical distance requirements. We can also accommodate participants online via Zoom, using any web-enabled device such as a computer, tablet, or a smartphone. We will be monitoring the advice and directives from relevant public health authorities, and will inform participants of their learning options for courses they have registered for.
If you have any questions, please contact Maria Lahiffe, Education Officer, by email or by phone at 613-736-5266 x114.
