Background & Annual Reports

The Social Planning Council of Ottawa was created in 1928 by local churches and community groups in order to respond to the then acute socio-economic problems created by the 1930s depression. Since then, the Social Planning Council has been a place where many ideas took form, including

  • United Way (Community Chest)
  • ParaTranspo
  • Ottawa Volunteer Centre
  • Community Information Centre
  • Council on Aging

Today, the SPC uses modern research and communication methods and works with Ottawa's social agencies, concerned residents and decision-makers to understand and advocate the social needs of our new city. The SPC is a non-partisan, not-for-profit, charitable organization run by an elected Board of Directors.
