The VOscars is a highlight of the year for the city’s volunteers and not-for-profits. The event celebrates Ottawa’s vibrant volunteer community and gives special recognition to those individuals, organizations and businesses that have made a meaningful difference in people’s lives.
The 2019 VOscars will be held on the evening of April 11th, 2019 at Ottawa City Hall.
Tickets will be available for purchase in early 2019.
Do you know someone who exemplifies the spirit of volunteering? Do you know a young person or senior who has made a significant contribution to our community through their volunteering efforts? Do you know a corporation, business or organization that supports volunteering among its employees or that has built a successful volunteer program or promotes our community's diverse populations in volunteering?
It’s time to recognize those volunteers and supporters of volunteerism that make a difference in our community.
