UPDATE on the new Civic development on Carling Avenue:

Our hospital is one step closer to opening one of the largest and most advanced hospitals in Canada with our recent submission of stage 2 of the Capital Planning Process to the Ontario Ministry of Health. The submission includes a proposed site plan, as well as detailed information on the programs that will be housed at the new Civic, including how much space each will need and equipment and staffing requirements. It also includes the development of a funding plan and a post-construction operating budget. The project is estimated to cost $2.8 billion. The Ministry of Health’s share is $2.1 billion, and additional funding will be raised locally through other avenues such as fundraising. For more information on the stage 2 submission, please visit:

“People in our region will come to this new facility for compassionate, skilled care. The new treatments and technologies that will be used and developed here will save lives and advance and revolutionize health care. This hospital is the future of health care.”
— Katherine Cotton, Chair of The Ottawa Hospital’s Board of Governors

“The transformation of The Ottawa Hospital will not be like anything we’ve done before. We are creating a facility – right here in our community – that will be the envy of the world for its ability to foster innovation in every aspect of healthcare.” – Cameron Love, President & CEO, The Ottawa Hospital

The new Carling site is the largest and most important healthcare infrastructure project ever in Ottawa. We are raising an unprecedented $400 million in community support and every dollar raised will help leverage four more dollars of government infrastructure investment.

This project is far more than simply bricks and mortar – this is your hospital. Join us as we re-imagine the future of healthcare
