2022 Tourette Awareness OCTranspo Bus Campaign

1 in 100 Canadians have Tourette Syndrome
It’s contagious, but our smiles is!

Kicking in the year with  our new 2022 Tourette Awareness OCTranspo Bus featuring some new lovely faces: Braeden, Marla and Louis. Tourette Ottawa would like to personally thank James Lewis and Pattison Outdoor Advertising for their ongoing support of the Ottawa Tourette Syndrome Community. We greatly appreciate your co-operation in bringing our vision of raising awareness of Tourette Syndrome to life!

Message from the President of Tourette Canada – Ottawa Chapter

Another year has come and gone, and I hope that everyone is able to spend time with loved ones this Holiday Season. 

I am sure that you are (as I am) exhausted; but please remember that all pandemics come to an end, and this one will too. This Holiday Season I will be reflecting on how blessed I am to work with such an incredible group of people at the TS Ottawa Chapter. I am beyond thankful for their hard work and dedication in providing support to all.

Wishing you much happiness and peace this Holiday Season and much joy in the New Year. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Erin McEwen
