We Need You!

We are currently looking for people to help organize the Mr Ottawa Bear event. If you have time to donate to help make this event a success, please contact us so that we can put you in touch with event organizers.


We also are looking for competitors for the contest. Prizes awarded will be: $150 for first place and $100 for second place.

The only real commitment that we would require of the winning candidate is to represent the Ours Ottawa Bears at this year’s Ottawa Pride festivities (ie. march in the parade).

Of course, as ambassador of the bears we hope that you will also participate in other club activities and help bring awareness of our group to the Ottawa region and to other clubs as well. You can participate as much as you want.

Previous competitors and winners have said that both the competition itself and the community participation during the following year have been amazing character building experiences that they will forever cherish. Please consider tossing your name into the hat and becoming a competitor by downloading the contestant application form and getting it to us as soon as possible.
