Principal's Message

Welcome to the Ottawa Technical Secondary School website. Our website has important information for students and their families, including announcements, a calendar of events, and links to resources to support learning and well-being.  There are many useful links that the District has included on our website.


We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather and learn is the traditional, unceded, and unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin Anishnaabeg People. It is our  hope that as we learn together, we  honour and respect the generations of Algonquin People who have been the stewards of this beautiful land.  We are so pleased to welcome Jasmine Doig who has been newly appointed as the Indigenous Graduation Coach for OTSS.  Jasmine has experience working in our community with families with her work at Innugatigiit and she is very excited to be supporting students at OTSS.

We feel  honoured and privileged to serve students and families at Ottawa Technical Secondary School.  Our school offers so many rich learning opportunities and pathways for students, with a focus on experiential education as well as exploring possible authentic opportunities for our students. As new students register at OTSS, we look forward to meeting them, and getting to know them, their families, and the community. 


The Pandemic has created challenging times for students, families and the community.  As a school community we are committed to supporting all students, whether they are working remotely, in person, or a mix of both remote and in person instruction.   Student well being and success is a priority and we want to do everything we can to work together to support students.


Please do not hesitate to reach out to your children’s teachers, student services, or the administration at any time. Working collaboratively with parents/guardians is critical to student success.
