MAX Ottawa

Formerly the Ottawa Gay Men's Wellness Initiative, MAX is Ottawa's health connection for guys into guys: 

  • We’re a community-based organization that focuses on maximizing the health and wellness of gay, bisexual, Two-spirit, queer, and other guys who are into guys, both cis and trans (GBT2Q).

  • We’re front line. MAX is on the ground in the Ottawa region, reaching out to guys into guys where they meet and socialize, raising awareness, providing prevention and education materials, and getting them connected to information and resources.

  • We have great services for you and your community. MAX offers individual, group, and community support and education services by and for guys into guys in the Ottawa region; and we work with the healthcare providers that serve them.
