Welcome to the Diocese of Ottawa, one of 30 dioceses in the Anglican Church of Canada. Additionally, we are part of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario along with the dioceses of Niagara, Toronto, Ontario, Huron, Algoma, and Moosonee.
With a head office near Parliament Hill in Canada’s national capital, the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa straddles the Ottawa River and spans 46,620 km. Away from the urban centre, our clergy and people have a presence in cottage country and are very active in many small farming and forestry communities, and in company towns through eastern Ontario and West Quebec. While church services, communications and activities carry on here in English, our French-speaking St-Bernard congregation gathers weekly in St. Alban’s near the University of Ottawa and nearby, in St. Margaret’s Vanier, is the Anglican, Inuktitut-speaking, Ottawa Inuit Congregation with weekly services, fellowship and priestly services.
We acknowledge that our diocese is on traditional Algonquin and Mohawk territories. We seek to nurture our relationship with our Indigenous members and neighbours, and to share responsibility for their homelands.
