A Vibrant Cultural Community Centre and the Heart of the Canadian-Italian Community in Ottawa

The Marconi Centre's aim is to cultivate the spirit and tradition of our Italian heritage with a goal of uniting the community through the promotion of cross-cultural activities, learning, recreation, and communication. We aim to combine history, health sciences, facilities, and community to enhance opportunities for young and old, and to perform works of charity.

Community Events

Marconi Centre is a social nucleus offering a variety of programs, services, and events for all members of our community.

Seniors use the Marconi Centre for programs such as seniors' exercise classes, weekly bingos, daily card playing, social gatherings, bocce, day trips and meetings and events of the L'Eta D'Oro (Golden Age Club) provide an ever important social component.

A day care program is provided under the direction of the City Of Ottawa along with city-run programs.

Home to the Rideau Kiwanis Club, Dante Alighieri Society, The Order of Italian-Canadians, Italian Week, and COMITES, our ongoing commitment to the community is extended to associations and groups that use the Marconi Centre as a domicile for their charitable work.

The Marconi Centre is also used by clubs and associations for their dinner dances and other activities while at the same time supporting the benevolent purposes of the Marconi Centre. Proceeds generated through the Marconi Centre support the ongoing charitable work of Villa Marconi Long-Term Care Centre and community programs. This is an opportune way to support the community by purchasing needed services for events such as banquets, weddings, social gatherings and business conferences or meetings.
