As a result of #COVID19 restrictions, there will be no public Anzac Day services in Ottawa this year. Together with the Australian High Commission in Canada, The New Zealand High Commission – Ottawa will still honour our fallen & stand together with a broadcast of tributes across social media.
The BBQ is back! Yay!!
For those that haven’t been before, this is a fab get together event where we fire up the BBQs and cook you up a bit of a feed.
We provide the main food: burgers, sausages and salads along with some water and soda and a few snacks.
If you would like to do some baking (afghans and ginger crunch come to mind ) or bring something as a snack or treat that is always a hit!
We will have some kiwi lollies and also a lolly scramble for the kids.
Bring along a blanket /chairs any kids games, or adult ones too
Let us know you’re coming as soon as you can so we can plan accordingly.
We will be asking for a small contribution towards it this year:

You’re all so awesome. We can’t wait to see you!
