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.

Our Faces

Our Faces campaign is all about people. Some are in recovery, others are family members, friends, and people who work in the field of addiction.  All are Recovery Allies who believe that by coming forward, they can make a difference.

We share our faces through social media to demonstrate the true face of recovery, raising awareness about the diversity of people affected by addiction, who have found recovery or who support our cause. Together, we hope to reduce stigma and help others find their way. We welcome you to join us.
