Sibshops of Ottawa are lively, action-packed workshops that celebrate the many contributions made by siblings of kids with special needs.

Sibshops of Ottawa
is a non-sectarian program of
The Friendship Circle of Ottawa
» Sibshops Training

Sibshops of Ottawa training with Don Meyer, Director of the Sibling Support Project in Seattle and creator of the Sibshop program, took place on

Friday, April 17, 2015
and Sunday, April 19, 2015

The primary goal of training is to train new Sibshop facilitators and administrators – that is, adult sibs, service providers, parents, volunteer facilitators and others who want to learn how to run a local Sibshop.

During the two days of Sibshop training, facilitators in training learned about sibs’ ever-changing issues across their life-span, found out how to organize local Sibshops, and experienced what Sibshops is all about with local sibs for a four-hour demonstration Sibshop.

This project is funded in part by
the Community Foundation of Ottawa.
