The Ottawa Rowing Club (ORC) is a not-for-profit sports organization established in 1867 to provide rowing instruction for participants of all ages.  The ORC is comprised of a volunteer Executive Committee, volunteers and paid employees.  From April to November, the ORC operates from its boathouses on the Ottawa River.  In the off-season, the ORC membership trains at an indoor satellite location.

Our mission is to provide athletic opportunities through completive and recreational rowing leading to personal success, increased fitness and community building in the national capital region.  We value excellence, health and fitness, responsibility, teamwork, commitment and respect.

The ORC provides coaching to rowers in competitive or sport rowing programs, as well as introductions to the sport through Learn-to-Row, summer camps and the Adult Rowing League.  Local high schools and universities train and race out of the ORC.
