Community Partners are the at the very root of building an organization from the ground up day by day. Without them, without you, there would be less hope in our communities for seniors, youth and those in need. So we just want to say THANK YOU and hope YOU will partner with us too.

Other Community Partners

Soldiers Helping Soldiers



Soldiers Helping Soldiers (SHS) is a volunteer activity, developed through the initiative of serving personnel, which seeks to connect homeless veterans and/or veterans or serving members not yet, but on a trajectory to be, homeless with the services and benefits to which they are entitled. 

SHS is founded on two distinct but linked ideals: 

volunteers who identify/seek out those in need, and
link them to services provided by a comprehensive local network of support agencies. 

SHS does not fund-raise, nor is it an advocacy group, nor a media opportunity. Serving members devote only time, no money is raised. 

  • build a network with local support service providers/representatives (eg; VAC, RCL, MFRC, municipal services, regimental/branch associations, messes, benevolent funds, ..) such that all volunteers are able to provide cogent information on each source of support to those who seek it

St. Margaret's Anglican Church


A wonderfully diverse community worships in English on Sunday at 9:30am in our historic little church on Montreal Road in Vanier (see map).  After that, from about 10:30 to 11:30, we gather for fellowship and ample refreshments in our Parish Hall right beside the church; followed by worship in Inuktitut on Sunday at 11:30am.

Once a village church outside the city, St. Margaret’s is now on the edge of Ottawa’s central core, surrounded by a multi-ethnic and economically mixed neighbourhood. It is home to an Inuktitut-speaking congregation with roots in the Arctic (Nunavut, the Western Arctic, Quebec, and Labrador). Since 2014, it is also home to the congregation of All Saints Sandy Hill who joined the faithful folks who had maintained an Anglican presence at St. Margaret’s since its founding in 1886 in what was then known as Janeville. Together we are working to build a community that brings together one of our First Peoples with Anglicans from a variety of backgrounds.  

Children are welcome and valued members of our community, which ranges in age from infants to 98! Music is an important part of our worship; enthusiastic congregational singing is supported by gifted musicians and a small choir.

We are a congregation that wants to grow and make a difference in the community around us. Join us!
