Who Is TechHelp Ottawa?

In 2015, TechHelp Ottawa donated time and expertise to the redesign of the Heritage North Museum website in Thompson, Manitoba. TechHelp continues to maintain that website.


For five years, the owner of TechHelp Ottawa volunteered with District 27 of the Retired Teaches of Ontario as co-editor and design artist for their corporate magazine, Horizons 27, and designed their logos, recruitment brochures, and other publications. TechHelp designed and continues to maintain their website.


"During the 2008 Government of Canada charitable campaign, a number of fund-raising efforts were made in our Department. Although each one was as innovative as the other, one particular project stood out in our sector: the production of a calendar with photos of management members, which was very successful and generated a tidy sum. This project would not have been possible without the invaluable volunteer contribution of TechHelp Ottawa. Because we did not have a production budget, they graciously designed a custom layout and produced a beautiful calendar in record time and at no charge, and for this we are very grateful. Thank you!"
