We Remember Barbara McInnes
Friday, July 02, 2021
We are deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Barbara McInnes. Leading the Community Foundation of Ottawa for over 20 years and was invested into the Order of Canada in 2010, Barb was an incredible community leader and mentor who dedicated herself to pioneering a new culture of philanthropy in our community. Inspiring many others to follow her example, Barb’s work has undoubtedly left a lasting, positive impact on Ottawa.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Barb in Vancouver, BC well before my days with the Dragon Boat Festival. She was an inspiration to me then, before I ever knew about her amazing work in Ottawa.
We are grateful for Barb’s friendship and guidance over the years, and our heartfelt condolences go out to her husband Glenn, and Daughters Emily and Leah.
