Welcome to our club!

We are known as "the little club that can". We may be a small group of 27 but we are dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. We enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie within the Club while planning, organizing and working hard at delivering an exceptional fundraising event. The end result is knowing that our efforts strengthen communities and serve children. When we give a child a chance to learn, dream and succeed, great things happen!

the KIWANIS CLUB OF OTTAWA WEST has been serving the COMMUNITY since 1988!

Our members are dedicated to serving the local community through various service and fundraising projects. Our Club has been in service to our community for more than 29 years. We are part of Kiwanis International, a global organization of member-volunteers who are dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time for over 100 years.

We'd love for you to come join us at one of our meetings or a service project. 

We meet on the first and third Tuesday of every month at 12:00 pm at The Best Western, 1274 Carling Avenue, (across from the Westgate Mall) in Ottawa.
