If you're old enough to remember the 50s then you probably remember Lotta's voice on the radio. She always ended her appeals with our address: 56 Sparks Street, Ottawa. Her voice made this the best known address in Canada. We invite you to listen (again) to her voice.
What's in a Name?
We’re called USC Canada because we started out way back in 1945 as the Unitarian Service Committee, founded by the energetic Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova. We’re still planting the seeds that Lotta sowed. Find out more about our founder, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova.
