History, Community, and Design
The items found here were crafted with the help of people with developmental disabilities and are manufactured using the original copper which covered the roofs of Canada's Parliament Buildings from 1918 to 1996. These small pieces of our history belong to all of us. A small but meaningful gift for family and friends. Made with attention to detail, by those that care.
The copper used for the maple leaf is the original copper which covered the roofs of Canada's Parliament Buildings for over 80 years! The original copper roof turned a pale green colour due to oxidization over time.
Under One Roof is a social enterprise founded by the Ottawa-Carleton Association for Persons with Developmental Disabilities.
The entire process is broken down, resulting in opportunities and meaningful work for people.
Under One Roof's products are designed to reflect Canadian symbols and their history. In addition to our well-known collections, we are developing new designs, including earrings that are coming soon!
