The Ottawa Bears is a group of Bears and Bear admirers located in the Ottawa, Ontario and Gatineau, Québec region of Canada.
The purpose of the group is to organize get togethers and social events for the bear community, to promote a more positive body image among large and/or furry gay men and to promote bear culture within the gay and straight communities of the greater Ottawa region.
We welcome people of all types –big or small, furry or smooth, bear or admirer– who like the company of bears.
We host weekly events such as bear coffee and bear gaymer’s night, monthly events such as dinners and brunches, annual events such as waterpark day, Bear-BQ and Mr Ottawa Bear as well as many random events in between.
