We can grow

Our non-partisan organization connects people who are passionate about making Ottawa better for everyone.


With your support, we can continue to show citizens the power of Participatory CityMaking, and of coming together to imagine a better Ottawa.

Synapcity is a not-for-profit. We build bridges between diverse communities so they can collaborate to innovate Ottawa, because cities are more resilient and happy when co-created.  We connect people so they can work together, multiply their number, amplify their strength and take greater advantage of their passion to improve the city.

We rely on your support to help Ottawans become more involved in civic and political life.

There are three ways you can support Synapcity:

Volunteer with us – we attract people who want to improve our city, to make it a better place to live and work, and make its people happier, healthier, smarter and safer. Community participation is an integral part of our philosophy and work. Contact us to get involved!

Partner we know trusting relationships are central to making a change. We have cultivated working partnerships with community groups across Ottawa. We help connect our partners with people who care about what our partners stand for and are looking to achieve. We bring individual knowledge and experiences together in a way that amplifies all efforts. Interested? Get in touch!
