Open NGO Canada Domain & Networking Services

Welcome to Open NGO Canada, an independent community project dedicated to supporting non-profit and non-governmental organizations across Canada.❤️ We understand the challenges faced by these organizations in establishing a strong online presence and managing their digital infrastructure. That’s why we are here to help by providing domain names and DNS infrastructure at no cost to eligible organizations.

Our Mission

At Open NGO Canada, our mission is to empower non-profit and non-governmental organizations to focus on their core objectives without worrying about the technical aspects of maintaining an online presence. By providing free domain names and reliable DNS infrastructure, we aim to enable these organizations to reach a wider audience, promote their cause, and make a greater impact in their communities.


  • We want to express our gratitude to the previous registrant who transferred the domain ongov.ca to us without any cost in March 2024, and it has been a defining moment for our project!

Any kind of help is welcome.
