National Capital Children’s Oncology Care Inc. Manoir Ronald McDonald House Ottawa, located on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation, was founded in 1983 and granted a charitable license in 1983. The House opened its doors to sick children and their families in June of 1984 and is part of a network of 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across Canada. Our House is owned and governed by National Capital Children’s Oncology Care Inc., a charitable organization. Its Board of Directors consists of 15 volunteer members from business, medical, and the surrounding community.
Our House will be expanding in spring 2023! We will begin to build an extension to our home by adding 22 new bedrooms, quiet spaces and much needed family gathering areas to the House.
The House is managed by dedicated professional staff that, while small in number, is large in heart. We are blessed by the support of a full complement of hardworking, dedicated volunteers. The Ottawa House is located next to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, an internationally recognized hospital.
We are dedicated to providing a warm, safe, affordable and compassionate environment for families of seriously ill children.
Making room for everyone. For all the travelling families with seriously ill children who need a place to stay while their children are in hospital.
Our House is more than just a place to sleep. It’s a haven of calm and support for families during difficult times.
Family Rooms replicate a little slice of home and act as an extension of the services that we provide at our House to families who have a child receiving treatment at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
