Retired Ottawa Firefighters Association

The Retired Ottawa Firefighters Association (ROFFA) was founded in 2010, by a group of Ottawa Retired Firefighters for the purpose of establishing an organization dedicated to serving retired Ottawa Firefighters, their spouses, widows and widowers.

Once an active Ottawa Firefighter retires, he or she automatically becomes a Member of ROFFA.

Please inform us of your retirement to be added to the ROFFA email alert list.

We would like to invite all those who were unable to watch this year's Memorial Service live, to logon  the Ottawa Firefighters Community Foundation website https://offcf.ca/ where the recorded ceremony can be viewed.
