We are very fortunate in our congregation to have not one, but two, inductees into the Order of Ottawa, the second one being the highly respected Ottawa architect Barry Hobin.
Barry Hobin is a founding partner of one of Ottawa’s leading architecture firms that is well known for its many contributions to Ottawa’s architectural landscape over the past 40 years. As the citation reads in part “His generous attitude and strong sense of community support have resulted in many philanthropic endeavours, such as The Ottawa Mission, The Salvation Army, The Boys and Girls Club and Multifaith Housing.
