About our house

National Capital Children’s Oncology Care Inc. Manoir Ronald McDonald House Ottawa 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.
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.
