Creating a better tomorrow

What a monumental year this has been for our foundation. On March 31, our fiscal year came to a close and we celebrated an inspiring year of transformative generosity from the community. Less than three weeks later, on April 19, we celebrated once again as we publicly launched the Campaign to Create Tomorrow — our ambitious $500-million fundraising campaign. In fact, it’s the largest in our city’s history.

We’re incredibly grateful for the support from our donors as we embark on the public phase of this campaign and as we help set into motion The Ottawa Hospital’s bold vision for the future of healthcare — here in Ottawa and beyond. The Campaign to Create Tomorrow will fuel this transformation, and we are  thrilled to be a part of this defining moment for our community. 

The cornerstone of the campaign is a new, $2.8-billion, world-class academic healthcare centre. This centre will be a continuously evolving tool for innovation and state-of-the-art technology — it will revolutionize how we care for patients.  

The campaign will also focus on our world-leading research, helping us become the hospital the world looks to for exciting new treatments and research discoveries. 

It’s time to bring this vision to life. With our campaign now in motion, it is you, our donors, who will make it possible. Over the coming months, we look forward to sharing with you our campaign progress, as well as building and research updates.

Thank you for joining us as we transform healthcare for all of us.

The Ottawa Hospital — 2021-2022 At a Glance


This historic campaign supports the Hospital’s vision for the future, focused on four critical pillars.



"The New Campus Development will epitomize innovation in every way and will be a game-changer for patients like me. The Ottawa Hospital team gave me my life back, and now it's time to give them the state-of-the-art facility they need and we, the patients, deserve. We owe our children the healthiest future we can give them."

“Critical services at our hospital — such as trauma care, neuroscience, mental health services, and cancer care — will be strengthened through this important campaign. These services affect so many of us, and a better-equipped hospital means they will be ready when we need them most. Just like they were there for me when I needed them.”
