Welcome to Our Congregation
The First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa is a spiritual community of 500-plus people who come from many different backgrounds. We are made up of people from different religions, ethnicities, races, sexual orientations and socio-economic backgrounds. The First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa dates back to the late 1800's.
We are seekers — looking for meaning and inspiration within the webs of our lives.
We are learners — growing in knowledge and understanding about ourselves, others, and the world around us.
We are builders — working together to create a supportive, inclusive community and a just, compassionate, and sustainable world.
We'd love you to visit!
