Getting Started


Slow Ottawa is your ad-free, one-stop guide to financial, social and ecological well-being in Canada’s capital. Use your choice of search functions to discover hundreds of ways to save money, help the planet and build a stronger community.

How it Works

On cursor-based devices (and on some touch screens) you can navigate by hovering over the QUICK MENU appearing at the upper left corner. (Try it now!) You can also hover to peruse the contents of the BLOGROLL, BLOG and AUDIOCAST.

If you’re using a touch screen (e.g. tablet or phone) you can explore using the Search box or the buttons below, and return to the home screen by hitting the header image.
