FAQs for youth

I need help immediately. Who can I contact right now?
I feel like I can’t handle my life right now, but I’m not sure it’s right to call my situation a “crisis” or an “emergency.” How bad do things have to be to call the Crisis Line?

The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival

The Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival is a not for profit event founded in 1993. The organization held its first inaugural festival in 1994 as a small half day event that is now a multiday celebration of the arts, sports, culture and heritage. The festival is North America's largest dragon boating event with over 200 teams in corporate, community and competitive categories. The festival offers free admission to multiple stages with world class entertainment, amusement attractions, extreme sports demonstrations, a variety of artisans, exhibitors, delicious culinary treats, beach side bar, children’s area and non-stop racing.

At YSB, we’re thrilled to have been selected as the top tier charity for the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival! We thank the board, staff, volunteers and paddlers for partnering with us to help youth in our community build a brighter future!

This year's festival takes place June 19-22. Visit the Dragon Boat Festival site for more information.
