Community Partners

Dovercourt believes strongly in working together with other groups and organizations and individuals who share our goals of building a healthy community. While our most important partner is the City of Ottawa, who provides our facilities and some funding assistance, we work with our local community associations, schools, special interest groups, and sometimes, just people with great ideas to enrich our opportunities, facilities, and accessibility. Some key partners include:

 

VRTUCAR
