“Heartwood House has been a huge support for the development of EcoEquitable and our ability to deliver high quality programs. Because of Heartwood House, we have a beautiful, dignified environment for our participants. As a small social enterprise, we especially appreciate shared services and equipment, central reception, affordable space, community kitchen and shared meeting spaces. Heartwood House is an exceptionally welcoming and friendly environment for staff, participants and volunteers.”

Our 26,000 square foot facility, just 6 minutes from downtown Ottawa was purchased in 2012. Since then it has been significantly renovated, including installations which make it fully accessible. It is easily accessed by public transportation and free three-hour street parking is available.
Heartwood's diverse services directly benefit the Vanier-Overbrook community. Heartwood has become a good neighbour of the Vanier and Overbrook Community Associations, as well as other community agencies in our area.
