June 28th, Alexandra Pope
Canadian Geographic

Alexandra Pope is the editor-in-chief of Canadian Geographic. She holds a Bachelor of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Leadership Studies from the University of New Brunswick (Fredericton) and a Master of Arts in Journalism from Western University. Her reporting career has spanned two countries, three provinces and a wide range of subjects and beats, from human rights issues in the Dominican Republic and Haiti to county council briefs in rural Alberta to the stories of refugees building new lives in New Brunswick. In 2011, a lifelong interest in meteorology led her to The Weather Network, where she produced content for television broadcasts and online and served as social media lead. She has been with Canadian Geographic since 2015.

Alexandra is an enthusiastic promoter of travel within Canada and will happily tell you what those clouds mean.
She currently lives in Ottawa with her husband and toddler son.

Johnson Insurance

We have added a link to the Johnson Insurance web site (see "Links" page).
Johnson provides competitive rates for Probus members for all kinds of insurance, particularly travel insurance.

Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.

We are a 'Combined' Club. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December - 2nd Wednesday). Meetings begin at 10:00 with a few minutes of announcements and then a speaker. Members start to arrive about 9:30 for coffee, cookies and chat (tea, Tim-bits and talk).

Meetings are at:

Gloucester Presbyterian Church
91 Pike Street
Ottawa K1T 3J6

Pike Street runs north from Hunt Club just west of Conroy. The church is at the corner of Lorry Greenberg and Pike. The parking lot entrance is off Pike.


 PROBUS' Vital Purpose

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.
