Thank you for your interest in touring The Ottawa Hospital. We are inspired by research and driven by compassion. This tour will give you a behind-the-scenes look at some of the world-class cancer research being done here in Ottawa.


For safety reasons, visitors must be 16 years or older. We require visitors wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals or flip-flops). Food and drinks, including chewing gum, are not permitted. These tours are offered in English only, but there will be a guide who can answer any questions in French.


Bike racks are located near the entrance and OC Transpo is nearby.


The Ottawa Hospital currently serves 1.3 million people and is dedicated to providing world-class patient care. To build the best possible hospital for you and your loved ones, we need your help – for better equipment, better facilities and better research. Your donation makes a real difference for health care in our community.
