Diplomatic Hospitality is a CFUW-Ottawa service group that has been active in and around the city for over forty years. Its original aim was to offer foreign diplomats and their families a taste of Canadian home hospitality and an introduction to snowshoeing in winter.  Since its inception, the scope of our service has evolved, its purpose now being to organize events for our guests that promote Canadian culture in general.
