The Ottawa Association of People Who Stutter will meet this week Wednesday, February 15th, 7:00 – 8:30pm. We meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. The next meetings will be March 1 and 15.

This meeting will be a little bit more informal, as we don’t have the meeting room at the library.

We will meet at the entrance of the Ottawa Public Library Main Branch at 120 Metcalfe St, Ottawa. Since the room was unavailable this week, we will meet first at the main entrance of the building at 7pm and then move to a cafe nearby.
