To provide, on a non-profit basis, affordable accommodation and services through which charitable or non-profit organizations and associations, which meet the admission criteria of the Corporation, render services to the needy, the poor, and arts and cultural communities of the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton and the surrounding areas.

"Every month, more than 20,000 individuals walk through our doors and discover something new about themselves."


Bronson Centre was established in 1996 as a non-profit registered charity. Our 45,000 square feet of space was originally the Immaculata High School, which was founded by the Grey Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.

Our oldest building dates back to 1928 and offers spacious, high ceilinged rooms. Additional buildings followed in a timely fashion. The Dr. D.A. Kearns Memorial Building went up in 1948 and was later followed by the North Wing (originally a convent) in 1952. In 1962, the building as we know it today was completed with a main foyer and auditorium.

As a high school and now as a dynamic community hub, we are part of the heart, soul, and memory of Ottawa residents far and wide.
