About the Ottawa Makeover Project

The Ottawa Makeover Project Network, a caring group of community-minded professionals, will change someone’s life! One lucky and worthy Ottawa-area resident will be selected to receive a life makeover that will help them to show the world how beautiful they already are – inside and out! While some elements of The Ottawa Makeover Project are cosmetic, this experience is more than just a standard makeover. Each year, the recipient begins a journey towards realizing their inner beauty by embracing better health, improved self-esteem and a clearer plan for their future. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for updates on each recipient’s journey!

This year’s big reveal – Cathy Whitney’s “Cathy 2.0” took place on May 13th, 2016  Share the moment with us and then take a moment to apply – for yourself or for someone you care about!
