Best Buddies Canada is a national charitable organization dedicated to enhancing our community through one-to-one friendships between individuals with intellectual disabilities and students.

Student Buddies & Buddies make contact with each other once a week by phone or e-mail. One-to-one activities (going for coffee, taking a walk, etc.) take place twice a month. All the Buddy pairs at a chapter get together four times per year for a subsidized group event.

The friendships formed through the Best Buddies program add a new dimension to the lives of all people involved. A Best Buddies friendship also helps to build acceptance not only among Buddies & Student Buddies, but also in the community.

The University of Ottawa chapter is affiliated with two host sites:

1) Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities - www.ocapdd.on.ca
2) L'Arche Canada - www.larchecanada.org
