Membership in the Ottawa Bears is open to all men who consider themselves bears or bear admirers and who wish to participate in club activities.

Benefits of Membership

Most Ottawa Bears activities are free to non-members but we will often offer discounted rates for members. Occasionally events may be limited to members only but they will be advertised as such.


Membership costs $20 per year and is due by the annual general meeting of the club which normally takes place not long after the Mr Ottawa Bear competition (ie. in March or April) and can be submitted to the club treasurer along with a filled-out membership application form at most Ottawa Bears events including Bear Coffee every Sunday afternoon.
