Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, we are falling well short of our target for the #WinOttawaHouse campaign and will need to refund the entry fees to participants and put the house on the market. Those who registered have a choice, a) Wait for us to refund thousands of participants in accordance with the contest Terms and Condition, and/or b) Agree to donate your registration fee to our three charities. It’s entirely up to you, just let us know. We appreciate your patience as it will take us some time to do the paperwork and refunds, rest assured we won’t let you down. We wanted to try something unique and sometimes ideas are not embraced, and we understand. We wish you all well. We will leave up our social media accounts if you have any questions. Our best to you, Connie and Allan.
