All work and some play.

We love a good party—and a good cause. Our events celebrate and give back to the amazing community that’s been so good to us.

Funny You Should Ask...

Unfortunately, the inaugural event was postponed due to the COVID pandemic, but “Funny You Should Ask” will be an evening of comedy, and networking, featuring Ottawa’s top business professionals. A mix of amateur and professional comedians will take the main stage to earn the audience’s laughs, all for an amazing cause. The event is focused on raising much-needed funds for suicide prevention and research at The Royal Mental Health Centre in Ottawa.

Gohba Housing Design Awards

Each year, the Ottawa home building community celebrates the best in housing design at the much-anticipated GOHBA Housing Design Awards gala event. TRUEdotDESIGN has been a proud sponsor and marketing partner of the awards since 2013. Each year we bring the committee’s theme to life by developing all of the event’s marketing collateral, including the evening’s treasured program booklet. The entire Tdot team also attends the gala as a show of industry support.

We’re committed to strengthening our community.

We believe in the power of marketing to make the world a better place. We’re proud to partner with nonprofit organizations to help them maximize their exposure and impact by offering discounted or donated services and other support.
