Cyber-Bear Video Chat

Getting cave/cabin fever from isolating at home? We know you miss socializing with your fellow bears so we’re moving the weekly Bear Hydration online!

Every Sunday afternoon @ 3:30pm (our usual bear coffee time) and also Wednesday evening @ 7:30 pm join us for a free online video chat.

Get your favourite snack and/or beverage and log in to meet up with your fellow bears.

For the best experience use a PC or Mac with a webcam and a headset or microphone. All web browsers are supported.

But if you don’t have a computer you can use your smartphone by installing the Google Hangouts Meet app for Android or iPhone and signing in.

If you don’t have a smartphone, you can still join in by dialing in to a phone number. You’ll hear us but you won’t be able to see anyone.

If you don’t have a phone or PC then use smoke signals and we’ll try to go rescue you.

Meeting connection info will be posted on our Twitter account and also right here just prior to the meeting so check it for details.

Can’t wait for our online video chats? Drop in anytime on our Discord server for free 24 hour text-based or voice chat with your fellow Ottawa Bears.

See you online!

COVID-19 Notice

Suspending Activities

As much as it pains us to do this, we have decided to suspend all upcoming activities in March and April in the face of mounting concern over the novel corona virus/COVID-19.

This includes Bear Hydration (bear coffee), games nights and Bear Feedings but we are still working on plans for the next Bear Bar Night in May as well as the Bears in the Woods event in July in the hopes that it will be safe by then to venture out.

Stay tuned via our website or social media as this is where we will be posting about any further cancellations.

Our members’ health and safety is our highest concern. This calamity will soon pass and we will let you know when we are ready to resume get togethers.

Stay safe.

Recurring Activities
*Note: As of 3/12/2020 many of the Ottawa Bears group activities have been suspended to protect our members from Corona Virus/COVID-19 exposure. Consult the club’s event calendar to confirm before coming out to one of our events.

Cyber Social

In this difficult time of social isolation we have come up with a helpful solution to allow bears in Ottawa to keep in contact with each other.

We have created a Discord server that can be used to text and voice chat anytime of day.
