The Lowertown Community Resource Centre strives to improve the quality of life of individuals, as well as the collectivity as a whole, by promoting community engagement.


Help the Lowertown Community Resource Centre continue to offer the programs and services that the community needs.

Calendar of Activities

What's happening at the Lowertown Community Resource Centre this month? Check the calendar.

Sign up for the Good Food Box program! For $10, $15, $20 or $25 you get fresh fruits and vegetables delivered to the Centre (40 Cobourg Street). Meet some new vegetables, encourage yourself to make healthier options, and get a great deal on fresh produce!

You just need to come in before the first Monday of the month (November 11th in this case) to register and pay, then come back on the third Wednesday (the 20th of November) to pick up your box.


Every community in Ottawa deserves social services like accessible mental health counselling, playgroups that support child development, meals on wheels to help seniors stay independent longer, training programs for the unemployed, or social groups for youth.

These and many other social services are essential for community and individual wellbeing, but they are becoming less and less available because funding for these services has not kept pace with population growth and rising levels of demand.

Social services are in danger from being stretched too thin. We ask Mayor Jim Watson, and Ottawa City Councillors to contribute an additional $5M in funding to social services in Ottawa. Social services need to be a priority in our city!

Feel free to send the above to your councillor and please sign this petition and share with your contacts, so that we can let Ottawa City Council know that Social Services Matter!

Registration starts on October 1st (until November 29th). Contact Karine (613) 789-3930 x 310 or Sarah (613) 789-3930 x 311
