The Ottawa Geek Market is a volunteer-run not-for-profit, and we pride ourselves on 2 things: having fun, and making a difference in our community. This year we’re raising money for the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. Our photo galleries are the best way to see just how fun this event is.

Available positions

We are currently looking to fill the following management-level positions:


  • Managers must be at least 18 years old.
  • We proudly encourage a fragrance-free environment and ask that all volunteers be fragrance-free for the event.
  • We’ll be offering training on March 16th or 17th at the Nepean Sportsplex.
  • We’ll be hosting a Volunteer Appreciation party in April after the event.


It’s important to us to have a diverse management and volunteer base. We welcome applications from any potential candidate who is comfortable working with individuals from different backgrounds. We especially encourage applications from individuals who are interested in contributing to the geeky community, are a member of a visible minority, are a person with a disability, or are geeks on the LGBTQ+ rainbow.

We are committed to providing a safe, harassment-free, welcoming, and fun work environment.


We work hard to make our event as accessible as possible for our managers, volunteers, exhibitors, and patrons. Should you require any medical accommodations, please don’t hesitate to let us know. It’s important to us that all managers feel respected, enjoy their time with us, and have their accommodations needs met.

In addition, upon individual request, we will modify our management selection processes to remove barriers to accommodate those with disabilities. If you require any accommodations to fully and fairly participate in the application or selection process, please contact Stacey at 613-862-3556 and she will work to provide you with a suitable accommodation in a manner that takes into account your accessibility needs.
