We began supporting families with sick children almost 40 years ago in 1984, the House was built with 14 bedrooms, a humble kitchen and 2 family rooms… and now it’s finally time for us to expand!
OUR NEW HOUSE will begin construction this summer, adding 22 more bedrooms, quiet spaces, kitchen areas and places to gather – all to reflect the diverse needs of growing communities.
Here’s a snapshot of the impact we were able to make on the lives of people from our community.

On McHappy Day, a portion of the proceeds from every McDonald’s menu item sold all day long goes to RMHC Ottawa to raise much needed funds for our programs and the families we support across our community.
In restaurants you can make a $2 $5, or $10 donation and receive a McHappy Day paper heart, you can buy a pair of McHappy Day socks for $5 (plus tax) at participating McDonald’s restaurants and through the McDonald’s app, and also check out the Exclusive McDonald’s x Peace Collective merch, featuring retro McDonaldland characters supporting RMHC Canada and families with sick children. While supplies last and available for a limited time.
