Who Benefits


Soloway Jewish Community Centre

The Soloway Jewish Community Centre is a gathering place for all people to come together in a spirit of diversity, respect and inclusiveness. The Soloway JCC serves thousands of community residents, young and old alike, through educational, cultural, recreational and social programs.

With the support of our generous sponsors and fundraising initiatives the Soloway JCC provides over $90,000 in scholarships annually to families and individuals who financially are unable to cover the cost of membership, preschool and day camp.

The Soloway JCC’s annual Send-a-Kid-to-Camp campaign gives more than 30 children, whose families cannot afford summer camp, unforgettable summer experiences and friendships that last a lifetime.

Through specialty fitness programs such as AquaCan, Post Stroke Aquafit, and Heart Wise Exercise Programs, in conjunction with the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, participants with cancer, stroke survivors and those who suffer with cardiac disease have a safe place to exercise. In addition to the physical benefits, these classes provide participants with invaluable peer support.


The Soloway JCC aquatics department offers programs for children with special needs including Aquatic Adventures for Autistic Children and Private or Group Lessons for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired. These classes are taught by lifeguards with special training in these areas.

For more than 60 years the Soloway JCC has been promoting positive, healthy ideals for all members of our community with an emphasis on community involvement.
