Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre
How do you celebrate the city’s hardest workers for creating positive social change? You throw them a big party, of course.
Anyone got a time machine? You’ll need it to fit in all the great events this weekend, featuring a jammed packed Saturday!
Over the past few years, Ottawa has seen a surge in female comedians in a previously male dominated scene, producing winners of both the local comedy club competitions and the Ottawa Comedy Awards.

Gather in Minto Park at 6pm for a vigil commemorating the victims of violence against women and gender-based violence.
