Recovery Day Ottawa


Join with us for the official Recovery Day Ottawa celebration in the National Capital at Ottawa City Hall.

During the month of September, Canadians are gathering to build awareness, challenge societal stigma, and celebrate the role that recovery plays in improving the lives of individuals, families, and communities.

We envision a world in which recovery from addiction is a common, celebrated reality - a world where all individuals will have access to the support they need when seeking help.

We believe by speaking out as people living in recovery, or as family, friends and supporters of those affected by addiction, we save lives.

Through our personal stories and shared experience, we hope to inspire others to join us. Together, we demonstrate the power and proof of recovery from addiction.

Community Addictions Peer Support Association

The Community Addictions Peer Support Association (CAPSA) is the organizer of Recovery Day Ottawa. 

CAPSA is a nonprofit organization of people affected by addiction. We are located in Ottawa, Canada.

We strive to empower individuals impacted by addiction by providing opportunities to integrate into the broader community through peer support initiatives and community engagement projects. We support all pathways to recovery and endeavour to collaborate with other organizations that provide services for those in need of help.


Our mission is to empower individuals affected by addiction by providing resources and opportunities to integrate into their community. 


  • We envision a world where all individuals affected by addiction have access to the support they need when seeking help, without stigma or discrimination. 
  • A world that is aware of the underlying causes of addiction, and actively works towards reducing their impact on people in our communities.
  • A world where recovery-focused services and supports are based on collaboration and partnership.
  • A world where communities are celebrated for their perseverance and commitment to recovery.
