Impact Hub Ottawa is a community and coworking space located in downtown Ottawa that inspires, connects & enables people working to create meaningful change in the world. Anyone who shares our vision for a better future for our city and our world is welcome to join us.

Powered by a 16,000 sq.ft. space purposefully designed for people to work, meet and create, we are part of a global network of over 15,000 purpose-driven individuals and organizations in 102 Impact Hubs around the world.

We use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a lens through which to view our impact in the world. Our programs and events are designed to help people work better together in meeting them.
