About our Team

Synapcity brings people and institutions together to open mindsets, share ideas, understand perspectives and collaborate on initiatives to improve our city, without political agenda or bias. We do this by facilitating inclusive conversations that address the challenges and opportunities we face as a city.


This team is raising funds under the umbrella of the Social Planning Council of Ottawa (SPCO). SPCO builds connections and capacity in the community by bringing people and organizations together to take action on social and economic issues. The SPCO is supporting community responses to the COVID-19 crisis in many ways, including:

  • Ensuring that marginalized and vulnerable groups have access to adequate information and resources.
  • Building the capacity of grassroots organizations to address challenges their members are facing.
  • Facilitating information exchange and collaboration at multiple levels, between government, mainstream service providers, grassroot organizations and vulnerable residents.
  • Supporting and encouraging local initiatives to exchange knowledge and promising practices.

We are also taking direct action through initiatives like the Collaborative Food Pantry, which gives vulnerable residents access to affordable, healthy food.
