Our club meets on the second Tuesday of each month except during July and August.
The morning begins at 10:00 a.m. for  socialization and signing up for activities followed by a speaker. Topics are varied, interesting and stimulating.

Special social events and outings occur throughout the year.

Western Ottawa Probus meets at the Kanata Baptist Church,
465 Hazeldean Road, Kanata

Visitors are welcome!

Hawkins    Hockey and international politics were featured by our September speaker, Gary Smith. He was in Moscow for the negotiations for the 1972 USSR-- Canada Hockey Summit Series and accompanied both teams throughout.  He had many anecdotes including Premier Kosygen's 1971 visit to Vancouver where he met Henri Richard and received a standing ovation at an NHL hockey game. This cemented his appreciation that hockey was a Canadian core value and thus helped to ensure the summit series the following year. His book  Ice War Diplomat  is available from the publisher Douglas & McIntyre or from Amazon canada.
