The Ottawa Children’s Festival de la jeunesse (OCF) provides a completely barrier free Festival. OCF is committed to diversity, inclusion and accessibility for all. As detailed in our Accessibility Policy, the Festival policies, practices and procedures strongly promote fairness, equality and gender equity in the treatment by staff and volunteers to all who attend the Festival. Achieving this is a priority, and we strive to create a completely inclusive experience for all residents – 2SLGBTQQIA+, Ottawa’s new immigrants, people of colour, Francophones, hearing impaired, disabled, and all equity-seeking communities and marginalized groups.
