Agents of change
People, place and programs designed to empower changemakers to do good better.
In our coworking space and across our digital ecosystem, our members gain access to a fiercely supportive and skilled community — helping take their mission-driven ventures to the next level.
Where we started
In 2011, six young leaders noticed a critical gap in their city. Without a meaningful space to connect, local changemakers were working in silos, missing out on opportunities to collaborate and grow their impact.
So they joined forces.
With a fierce community behind them, they worked on creating a community space where people could come together and drive social change. After countless meetups, consultations and design sprints, Impact Hub Ottawa — with a dedicated Board of Directors, impact investors, and volunteers — officially launched in 2012.
Community co-creation and grassroots engagement are at the heart of everything we do.
10 years of collective impact
Impact Hub Ottawa began as a vibrant community space for changemakers to connect, collaborate and grow.
Today, we’ve enhanced our offering to make our network of impact-driven leaders, experts and community builders accessible to our members, wherever they are — online, and in-person.
Whether you’re dropping in for a Brown Bag Lunch, connecting with a coach, or meeting our city’s brightest at our members-only events, our unwavering commitment is to helping you, our members, in building a better tomorrow.
Locally rooted, globally connected
Our members gain access to a global network of 107 Hubs — the largest, fastest growing network of social innovators in the world.
A world of impact is out there, from Amsterdam to Zagreb and Ottawa to Oaxaca.
