What moves you? Join us on October 5, 2019 for the Ride for Refuge, a family-friendly cycling and walking fundraiser that supports charities who provide refuge and hope for displaced, vulnerable and exploited people everywhere.

About Capital City Mission

Capital City Mission is a community of people creating home in Ottawa's Lowertown through a daily drop-in, chaplaincy care, and weekly Bible study.


Since 2000, we have sought to love our neighbour as ourselves in Ottawa’s Lowertown. We recognize that each person has a unique gift to offer the world and we seek to help one another find our giftings as we are each transformed through receiving love and finding deep community. We recognize that the fullness of life doesn’t look the same for each person. It doesn’t necessarily mean employment and it certainly doesn’t mean status. We each have a vocation and many pursue theirs in the context of our daily Drop-In. Together we bear fruit.


RIDE with us this October!
