Due to COVID-19, we are currently offering two support group meetings throughout the summer virtually, via ZOOM instead our monthly meetings at the Royal Ottawa Hospital.
This is a great opportunity to meet the chapter and to discuss issues and perhaps find out how others deal with many of the same issues. It’s free and everyone is welcome! JOIN US.

I hope everyone is staying safe during this COVID-19 pandemic. Sorry for the late post everyone. Here are some photos and videos that were shared by families of the Ottawa Chapter during their individual Virtual Trek for Tourette this year. Thank you to all who were able to do their trek.
For many, it’s easy to get swallowed into the social media hoopla and panic right now. Rest assure, if we all work together and KEEP CALM, we will see the end of this.
In the meantime, please continue to update yourself with information:
- Federal: canada.ca
- Provincial: ontario.ca
- Municipal: ottawa.ca
Given the current status of the COVID-19 virus, the last thing we want is to put any of our Trekkers at risk.
We are cancelling the meet-up at the event however we encourage that everyone continue raising funds and simply Trek within your immediate neighbourhood. By doing so, we believe that not only will we still be raising funds, but also expanding our scope of awareness.
All awards and prizes will still be provided.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Erin directly at erinEmcewen@gmail.com or 613.451.1582
Thank you for your continued support!
