Mr Ottawa Bear

The annual Mr Ottawa Bear competition is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, January 27.

We are still in the planning stages and will update this page as details become available but be sure to mark your calendar; this yearly event is not to be missed!

We Need You!

We are currently looking for people to help organize the Mr Ottawa Bear event. If you have time to donate to help make this event a success, please contact us so that we can put you in touch with event organizers.


We also are looking for competitors for the contest. Prizes awarded will be: $100 for first place and $50 for second place.

The only real commitment that we would require of the winning candidate is to represent the Ours Ottawa Bears at this year’s Ottawa Pride festivities (ie. march in the parade).

Of course, as ambassador of the bears we hope that you will also participate in other club activities and help bring awareness of our group to the Ottawa region and to other clubs as well. You can participate as much as you want.

Previous competitors and winners have said that both the competition itself and the community participation during the following year have been amazing character building experiences that they will forever cherish. Please consider tossing your name into the hat and becoming a competitor.

    Save the date… The evening of January 27 we will be hosting the tenth Mr Ottawa Bear competition. Details to follow so stay tuned!

  • Mr. Ottawa Bear 2017

    Congratulations to Adam who is this year’s Mr. Ottawa Bear!

    With stunning performances by the Ottawa Gay Men’s Chorus, Boylesque and the Bytown Kings and featuring a surprise visit from our very own local bear celebrity Drake Jensen, the 2017 edition of the Mr. Ottawa Bear competition was a rousing success.

    To loud cheers of “woof!” from the audience, Gustavo and Adam strutted their stuff onstage while a silent auction raised money for our chosen charity (Family Services Ottawa).

    A great time was had by all!
