About Us

The Ottawa Sport Council is a non-profit organization dedicated to representing sport in the nation’s capital. 

Through support and encouragement, we strive to create and nurture sport environments that everyone can enjoy, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, culture, income-level and ability. As an advocate of sport, we work to:

  • Promote the value and benefits of sport
  • Raise the profile of amateur organizations
  • Produce educational resources
  • Encourage sport tourism


Amateur sport is blooming in Ottawa. To guide this growth, we’re working with the City of Ottawa Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department to create a Municipal Sport Strategy. We also partner with the Major Events Office to encourage sport tourism, bringing provincial, national and international sporting events to the capital.
