Board of Directors

The Ottawa West Community Support Board of Directors is made up of representatives from various churches in Ottawa’s West End. The Board of Directors meets on a monthly basis and sub-committees meet regularly throughout the year. Approximately 90% of the Board Members are themselves seniors.

The OWCS Board of Directors also relies on representatives with specific expertise to serve as Members at Large. Traditionally, most or our Members at Large are seniors with a background in health, finance, social service or senior’s issues.

Many of our Board Members are also direct service volunteers, which gives them a unique opportunity to receive feedback from clients.
