An Innovative, Collaborative and Connected Sport Community!

Where will the House of Sport call home?

The RA Centre in Ottawa is the ideal location for this one of a kind, first in Canada, innovative idea. The RA’s main campus on Riverside Drive provides an valuable set of opportunities including access to transit; the airport and train station, active transportation options; bike paths and riverfront pathways, parking, nearby shopping, on-site restaurant, banquet and conference services, fitness centre and activity areas, existing space, infrastructure and room to grow.

A member supported not-for-profit organization, the Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada (best known as the RA or RA Centre) operates a multi-sport, recreation and leisure facility conveniently located in the heart of Ottawa. With a deep and quality laden line-up of fitness programs, sports leagues designed for adults, summer camps for children and youth and clubs for all ages, the RA is an environment that values fun, respect and excellence.  RA members celebrate in a social atmosphere with a new story created each day.  Supporting these stories is the ability for members and the public to access services from the RA’s Events and Conference team offering quality food and beverages. With a proud legacy of community engagement that embodies a clear passion for excellence in sport, the RA has much to offer the sport community.
