The Taggart Parkes Foundation is a non-profit, family-run organization that is committed to giving back, with an emphasis on improving healthcare services, supporting and empowering
at-risk youth, and fostering healthy communities.

BGC Ottawa provides safe, supportive places where all kids and teens, of all backgrounds, can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, and develop confidence and skills for life. The Taggart Parkes family has been an instrumental part of allowing youth to discover and achieve more in our city. Their commitment to children and youth is powerful and genuine.
Their significant contribution of $1.4M to construct the new Taggart Parkes Family Clubhouse in 2021 has been monumental. We officially opened the doors in 2022 and we are currently serving over 200 young people, ages 6 – 18, per evening. In this short time, we are already seeing the huge level of impact this incredible facility is having in our community.
