OCISO Operations – COVID-19

The COVID 19 pandemic has led to major shifts in our way of life. One thing that hasn’t changed is that OCISO remains fully operational and focused on our mission to serve newcomers in Ottawa. We have adapted by transitioning to delivering our programs and services remotely or virtually. To find out more about these measures, please visit Programs and Services Offered During the COVID 19 Pandemic.

Our Mission!

OCISO supports immigrants through the journey of making Canada their home by providing creative and responsive programs that are culturally and linguistically appropriate, by building community through mutual respect and partnerships, and by fostering healthy and inclusive spaces for open dialogue and healing.

What we do 🙂

We are community based non-profit organization that has been providing services in Ottawa since 1978. We are motivated by the stories of new immigrants, and we are there every stage of the journey. OCISO directly serves over 10,000 immigrants and refugees every year. Our work is augmented by the generous efforts of our enthusiastic, caring and talented staff, volunteers, both established and new Canadians.
