A Century of Charitable Work

In 1910, IODE Laurentian Chapter donated $17,000 to build and furnish a tuberculosis sanatorium (later the Royal Ottawa Hospital). Recently, when the hospital was rebuilt, the chapter was still there to help, this time with furnishings.

IODE Laurentian Chapter, founded in 1906, is a local wing of a national women's charitable organization - IODE - dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for individuals, through education, community service and citizenship programs. Please review the information contained on this website and consider donating to the work of Laurentian Chapter. You can make your contribution online at the flick of a finger. See the "Donate" button in the upper right corner of this page.

Laurentian Chapter cheque presentation

Linden House "Jack Straw"

IODE Laurentian Chapter enjoyed a very successful "benefit night" when the Linden House Theatre Company generously shared the income from the attendance on October 23rd. The Chapter members offered a finger food buffet prior to the presentation, which was enormously enjoyed by the attendees. The play was a delight with an excellent counterpoint between the cast members. There is no doubt that Linden House is developing a devoted fan base, and it is an evening greatly anticipated by Laurentian members and their friends and family.
