Welcome to all about Dominik Janelle!

Dominik in Stonecrest Park.

Bonjour! Hello there! My name is Dominik Janelle and I’m running to be your city councillor for the brand new Ward 24, Barrhaven East.

I am a proud Barrhaven resident of 13 years, mental health advocate, and volunteer worker thrilled to be seeking your support. Caring for others is something I pursue passionately and I strive to be the change I want to see in our community.

I’m an avid and active volunteer in our community.
In my efforts I have assisted Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, I participate in the City of Ottawa’s Adopt-a-Park program, and I have most recently assisted on the recent Mayoral Debate hosted by CAFES Ottawa.

Having grown up in Barrhaven, attending St. Andrews Catholic School and Longfields Davidson Heights Secondary School, I bring a fresh, unique, and new local perspective to municipal politics.

Having been first to advocate for our new ward, as well as to bring Barrhaven East past the present and into the future, I hope to have your consideration, support, and vote this October 24th.

Work Experience

My first ever job was in Barrhaven East, with the Nepean Flyer Force. My sibilings and I would deliver newspapers to residents of Barrhaven and I have always enjoyed meeting and speaking with my neighbors.

Since then, I have worked as a Timekeeper for the Nepean Minor Hockey Association (NMHA), a Soccer Referee with Ottawa South United (OSU), an evening Team Supervisor at Tim Hortons, a Mover for Cassidy’s Moving and Storage, a Clerk at Party City and as a French Tutor with Ottawa Catholic School Board.

In my University years, I worked as a Student Software Developer at Rockport Networks, a Software Application Developer at Statistics Canada, a Junior Programmer at Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and as a Engineering and Computer Science Intern at Communications Research Centre Canada (CRC).

In summation, I have worked in both private and public sectors throughout my life, and each position has provided a different set of challenges of which I have always risen to meet.


In my years in Ottawa, I have in total, volunteered with the Ottawa Mission, Salvation Army, CAFES Ottawa, the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority and the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

I am also the Treasurer for my Fraternity, entailing budget management, fiscal responsibility and providing a yearly balanced budget.

As an associate member with Branch 641 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Barrhaven, I participated in their Clean Up The Capital campaign in May of this year!

In April I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for a new Salvation Army church on Bill Leathem Drive. This will be a place for my community to come together and I look forward to the day it opens.

Since March I have walked 250+ km cleaning up garbage and litter alongside our roadways, sidewalks and parks. I want a cleaner environment for everyone and hope to inspire others by example!

At the local level, I am our city’s volunteer caretaker of Redpath Park through the City of Ottawa’s Adopt-a-Park program!
