City of Ottawa Virtual Programs 

Join us for one of our Winter 2023 virtual LEGO programs running through the City of Ottawa. Choose one-day workshops or two-class sessions. Note that the technical requirements vary for our courses; we now have some courses that only require a Chromebook or device.  

Registration is ongoing on the City's new registration system. Note that there are no longer print or online recreation guides.  Searching for LEGO is a good way to find our programs.

Best way to register: Use the barcode links with each description below to reach the course registration page directly.  You can browse the new system without an account, but you'll need a new account with the City to register.

Visit ottawa.ca or contact (613) 580-2424 ext. 32047 for more information about virtual programs.  

Don't forget to check out our in-person Winter classes and workshops as well.
