Santa Claus is coming to town (virtually)

The workshops in the North Pole are busy preparing for Santa’s annual Christmas Eve trek – which is just around the corner. With health restrictions still on everyone’s mind this year, Santa is expanding ways to connect with Ottawa’s children, including a special personal virtual visit, straight from the North Pole to you – from November 27 to December 19.

It’s easy to connect. And, you won’t need to pass through the seven levels of the candy cane forest and the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops to see Santa. Just register online today with your City of Ottawa account at

Each session provides five minutes with Santa and participants will receive a festive digital photo. So, grab some hot chocolate, prepare your wish list, and get your clicky fingers ready for some face time with old St. Nick.

Registration is now open and it’s free to sign up!

For more information on City programs and services, visit or call 3-1-1 (TTY: 613-580-2401). You can also connect with us through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
