Welcome to the Olde Forge

Community Resource Centre


There’s a beautiful log home in the middle of a busy intersection in Ottawa west end...Welcome to the Olde Forge Community Resource Centre!  The Olde Forge is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that, for 45 years, has been empowering older adults to maintain their independence through advocacy, referral, and support services. It offers programs that promote social inclusion, wellness, independence, and that allow seniors to improve their physical, mental, and social wellbeing. Our center’s offerings include community support services (CSS) such as adult day programs, social and recreational programming, housekeeping, home-maintenance, transportation, foot care, and grocery support. All these services work together to ensure seniors have the means to continue to live independently and safely in our community. Here at the Olde Forge, we understand the importance of feeling connected and we strive to create a supportive, friendly, and inclusive environment for all. Our recreation program is always evolving to deliver the most relevant and engaging content for seniors. The recreation calendar is always filled to the brim with workshops, fitness classes, and socials for all interests and abilities.  The recreation program even comes equipped with a variety of virtual programs.  Whatever your interests, whatever your needs, you will always have friends at the Olde Forge.

Testimonial 1
I really have appreciated all the work and care that the Olde Forge has done to help the seniors in our community deal with the challenges of the COVID-19, especially during the winter months.  I am an 85-year-old living alone, and I look forward to the calls from the Mercuri phone program Monday through Friday.
Testimonial 2
So grateful to the Olde Forge for offering these wonderful services throughout the week to carry me through the COVID-19 pandemic. I so look forward to waking up in the morning to get a phone call from the staff telling me about stories and poems, social chats, and special guest speakers.
