As Ottawa public health officials give us more direction around COVID-19, let’s remember to take care of our holistic health, including social and emotional health.

MAX Ottawa is doing all it can to keep our community safe and connected, including keeping The List updated and our recently community response page:

MAX is here for you…and we need you!

It has resources, tips, ways to get involved, and more.

“The List” is Ottawa’s Wednesday to Thursday guide for 2SLGBTQ+ friendly events.
