Apartment613 Community Initiatives is a registered not-for-profit. Our main activity is Apt613.ca, a hyper-local Ottawa arts and culture blog, named ‘Best Community New Website’ by the Canadian Online Publishing Awards in 2017. It’s a platform for news and ideas, arts previews, podcasts and videos produced by a team of 100+ volunteer contributors.
To further its mandate of facilitating community engagement, Apt613 launched 613U in March 2017, a series of media resources designed for local cultural groups, businesses and citizen journalists, with the goal of improving their capacity to communicate about cultural happenings and local issues. Following a successful pilot year, we have devoted to expanding the 613U program, producing new online resources, and further developing the workshop series as a permanent piece of our not-for-profit activities.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) will once again be offering a shuttle from downtown Ottawa to Gatineau Park so you can catch the fall foliage in all its glory.
