flagsWelcome to the Scottish Society of Ottawa, a not-for-profit organization that aims to celebrate the National Capital Region’s links with Scotland. Our flagship event is an annual, free New Year’s Eve party – HOGMAN-EH! – on December 31. All our welcome!  We also celebrate the genius of a great Scottish poet with a Robbie Burns Day Dinner, commemorate St. Andrew’s Day, host a Spring Scottish Breakfast, and are developing a new Canadian tradition to commemorate Canada’s first Prime Minister and great Scottish Canadian with the Sir John A’s Great Canadian Kilt Skate. Come in and rekindle your relationship with Auld Scotia.

The Scottish Society of Ottawa has been founded to revive and rejuvenate the historic links between Canada and Scotland.  Through special events and educational programs, we want to expose more Canadians to our shared history and tell the story of Scotland in the 21st century – a modern nation state.
