OAC Community Gathering

OAC Website Colour Scheme-2.png

The annual Community Gathering provides us an opportunity to share with the community the work that we’ve been doing, as well as hear from our community members. In 2023, the Ottawa Aboriginal Coalition hosted the first Community Gathering dinner since the beginning of COVID-19 which included guest speakers, local Indigenous entertainment, and a catered dinner. Join us for the 2024 Community Gathering at Ottawa Convention and Event Centre on May 22nd from 5pm to 8:30pm for this year's gathering where we will be recognizing and celebrating Indigenous community. 

This year's theme will be "Recognizing and Celebrating Indigenous Community".
