Services that you can use are:

  • Walk and Talk: If you feel unsafe walking somewhere, or if you’re bored, lonely or feel isolated and want someone to talk to, you can call 613-520-4449.
  • Walk and Talk Texting: If you prefer to chat over text, you can send a message to 343-883-8169.
  • Borrow a First Aid Kit: You can borrow one or more of a variety of first aid kits for up to a month. Now offering no-contact kit delivery and retrieval in Ottawa. If you would like a first aid kit, you can email
