    The Ottawa Mission


    Peter Tilley has been the C.E.O. of The Ottawa Mission since June 2013. The Ottawa Mission is one of Canada’s oldest, yet most innovative, downtown shelters for the homeless, providing a full range of services to the less fortunate in our community. Working closely with the board of directors and the senior management team, Peter has steered the organization through three ambitious strategic planning processes that have seen the organization enhance its services to the homeless in the areas of mental health supports, addiction and trauma services, housing outreach, employment and education, job training and palliative care. Recently, he oversaw an organizational restructuring and realignment that will lead to administrative efficiencies as The Mission prepares for the challenges of the future.
