Dovercourt Dance and Family Get Together

13 Jun, 2020

OUR DOVERCOURT DANCE IS GOING DIGITAL!

Just because we are physically distancing doesn’t mean we can’t still dance the night away together!  On Saturday,

June 13th at 7:00 pm

we invite everyone to join our Dance-A-Thon from the comfort of their own homes. Listen to great music, see your friends and join our Zoom party!

This Dance-A-Thon is a chance to help raise critical funds for Citizen Advocacy during these difficult times. We ask that you donate what you’re able to or to seek pledges from family and friends for this fun event.

Citizen Advocacy Ottawa offers the virtual dance-a-thon as a fun recreational activity. Participants should understand that there is always a possibility of physical injury. Participants in our virtual dance-a-thon do so at their own risk. We do not moderate any chat conversations. Citizen Advocacy Ottawa accepts no responsibility for your actions.

COVID-19 Information

We understand that you have concerns about the current situation around the world, including Ottawa, relating to COVID-19. Our top priority is the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, staff and the community at large. To date, Ottawa has remained a low risk for COVID-19 and we currently have no plans to cancel or postpone.

As part of our planning, and to be proactive, we are monitoring the Ottawa Public Health website, Province of Ontario’s website and the government of Canada’s public health website and putting in to practice their recommendations. We are also in regular contact with the recreation centre to learn about the safeguards they are putting in place.  In addition, we ask that everyone make themselves familiar with tips and resources on how best to prevent the spread of germs.

Should there be any changes to our schedule, we will notify individuals directly by email, and post information on our website and our social media channels.

Evening in the Maritimes

Immerse yourself in the Maritimes this November at ABLE2's authentic east coast kitchen party. Evening in the Maritimes brings Ottawa to the Maritimes for a fun night filled with fresh lobster, lively east coast music, a chance to take home amazing gifts and prizes from our sponsors, while raising money to help enhance the quality of life of people living with disabilities in the National Capital Region.

Caregiver Retreat

Caregiver Retreat

The retreat will celebrate the resilience that caregivers share, introduce them to new tools and ways of thinking, demonstrate the importance of connection, and will leave caregivers feeling positive about their role. The goal of the day will be to decrease caregiver stress, provide tools and strategies to assist caregivers in managing their own mental wellness, and provide informative, relaxing and interactive sessions. This is the largest caregiver retreat and conference in Ontario. Last year we had nearly 200 in-person attendees and 2000+ virtual viewers.
