How it start…

It was back in 2008, I was just arriving in Ottawa and I was unemployed. I was looking to do free activities with my young girl since our budget was very tight! I look around and I couldn’t find any central place where I can read about free things to do here in Canada, specially in Ottawa… Free Activities was born. It is only in September 2011 that I was starting to use a CMS (Content Management System) and the result is this website: Very easy to use and to find what you are looking for. It’s also categorized by cities or type of activities: museums, events, outside and others. I have a blog section where I put free things to do / have / share but I don’t have a category for it.

And now…

I am starting with a few cities of Canada but I hope to rapidly expand across the Canadian territory. This cannot happen without you.

Feel free to share your ideas, free activities to do and comments with us.

The more activities we post, the more visitors we get, and the more activities we get …
