Be part of the growing movement to celebrate kindness in Ottawa    |    Kindness Week 2022 runs from Feb 18-25!

The city-wide Kind Ottawa Initiative together with its flagship event, Kindness Week, will be celebrating its 15th Anniversary in 2022.  Kind Ottawa has become a vibrant movement in our community, encouraging people to “choose to be kind” and recognizing those who engage in everyday acts of kindness.  Kindness Week 2022 will take place from February 18th–25th.   This community initiative would not be possible without our generous Sponsors.

Founded by Rabbi Reuven Bulka, community leaders and volunteers from across Ottawa employ their resources, experience, and enthusiasm to bring the Kind Ottawa initiative and Kindness Week to life.  Kind Ottawa is endorsed annually by His Worship, Mayor Jim Watson, through an official Kindness Week declaration.  Local MPPs issue a Members' Statement in the provincial legislature each year, inviting their colleagues to join Ottawa in celebrating Kindness Week.  In fact, on June 3, 2021, Kindness Week across Canada became law.  Senator Jim Munson designated the third week of February as Kindness Week which received Royal Assent on June 3, 2021.  Canada is the first country in the world to pass such legislation.

It is with heavy hearts that we reflect on the passing of Rabbi Bulka, who passed away on June 27, 2021.  Kindness was at the core of the person he was, and it will forever be his legacy.  He was the kindest man and his care and concern for others, for his communities, and for the world at large was unwavering, anyone who knew him was better for it.  Kindness Week is a special tribute to the founder of this wonderful initiative as we continue his work to celebrate and recognize “everyday acts of kindness” and those who “choose to be kind”.

Kindness Week 2022 will take place February 18-25 virtually accross KIND OTTAWA Social Media channels.
