WE’VE MOVED! EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 2023: LiveWorkPlay is located in Bayview Yards at 7 Bayview Station Road, Ottawa, ON, K1Y 2C5

Please note that our office is not a 9-5 operation and visits are by appointment only. This is because all of our staff work in the community and the office is a place we use for meetings as a place for staff to stop off before their next destination.

Our main phone number (automated) is 613-235-9550 (directory provided).

LiveWorkPlay responds to thousands of calls and emails every month. We have a great reputation for our speedy response times, but we are a small team and at certain busy times of year, your patience is appreciated as we work hard to catch up on all of our correspondence.

LiveWorkPlay does not offer a drop-in for visitorsVisitation is by appointment only. This is because our work takes us out into the community and we do not maintain a staff presence at our offices at all times.  Please get in touch and we will be happy to organize an appointment where appropriate.

You can email the Chair of the Board at The role of the Chair does not involve responding to operational questions or issues. In general, it is appropriate to contact the Chair if you are yourself a board member of a non-profit organization and/or you have business to discuss that is related to governance.
