Smiling Faces, a new recreational PSP Program

Thinking of you and your kids, PSP has developed the new recreational program for children “Smiling Faces” which includes more than 50 free and fun activities for 2021.  Virtual museums and national park tours, drawing contests, outdoor events and more options are available for your family in the Ottawa-Gatineau region. Check the program webpage to discover all we have planned for the next months and how to register.

The new program focusses on recreation opportunities that could support the social-emotional well-being of our little ones in the context of COVID-19 pandemic and other stressing situations.  Our goal, help our kids to bring to light what gives them joy, passion, and meaning in life in a healthy and positive way. Families are invited to suggest new activities to add to the program by sending an email to….or by posting their initiatives in our Facebook group Smiling Faces 2021.


All retired or active military members are welcome to participate as volunteers. We count on you to support the activities and make connections with our community. Do not miss the chance to give hope and inspiration to the young ones and make a difference. Available roles and related duties are described in the program website. We will hold a couple of pre-events calls for volunteers in the next weeks.

The virtual launch event of the Smiling Faces program will be on June 24 at 5 pm on Facebook and YouTube Live streaming. Connect with us that day and ask your questions.
