The aim of the International Club of Ottawa (ICO) #ottawaclub is friendship for the purpose of introducing international men and women, temporarily living in the Ottawa area, to Canadian members, Canadian culture, and the Canadian way of life. Membership is free to International members and it provides an opportunity for people from the diplomatic, business, and academic communities to share knowledge of their countries and their talents. The Club has no charitable, political, or religious affiliations. Although the working language of the ICO is English, many members speak multiple languages like French, Spanish, and Arabic. The ICO organizes several activities for the members such as: Arts & Heritage, Beginners’ Bridge, Duplicate Bridge, International Cooking, Walk ‘n Talk, ICO Talks and special events.
