Our Mission

The Ottawa Senators Foundation empowers children and youth to reach their full potential by investing in social recreation and education programs that promote both physical and mental wellness.

With support from the community, the Foundation is breaking down the barriers to sport and recreation, educating youth about the dangers of substance abuse, and ensuring that specialized physical and mental healthcare services are available to those who need them most. Thanks to the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, alumni association, donors, sponsors, and fans, the Foundation was able to reach 53,800 kids with programming support this past year.
