Serving Ottawa-Gatineau since 2017

The 613-819 Black Hub regularly brings people of African descent in Ottawa-Gatineau together to coordinate volunteer-led efforts to address anti-Black racism through systemic change primarily in education, justice, employment, business and politics. 

Our goal is Ottawa-Gatineau Black communities that are strong financially, institutionally, politically and socially and working to grow stronger every day.
The Hub has coordinated activities on race-based education data; federal and municipal funding, policy and elections; and hate crimes. The Hub helps unite the Black community by holding its meeting as much as possible in Black controlled spaces. The Hub was founded in December 2017.

UPCOMING EVENTS

On October 24, Ottawa residents will choose a new city council and new school board trustees. As almost half of current city councillors aren’t running, there are many new faces – and very few of them are saying anything about what they’ll do to improve the lives of Ottawa’s Black communities. The election is your chance to vote for candidates who have the potential to be allies. One thing is clear: not voting will lead to candidates being elected who will do nothing for Ottawa’s Black communities.

To help you decide, the Hub has prepared a document with recommendations on which candidates to vote for in key wards. Please use it and get out to vote!
