    Join Capital Vélo Fest on Saturday, September 16, 2017 in a public bike rally starting & ending at the Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club. It is a fundraiser for the Canada Africa Partnership Network to raise funds to provide homeless teenage women in Uganda with safe shelter, education, and job skills. The rally guides participants on a bike ride along lesser known cycling trails and routes in the region in search of answers to quirky questions and identifying local artifacts of interest. It is a fun and healthy way to spend a few hours on your bike with family, friends, and colleagues in a unique adventure in the Capital!

  • Community Paddle in Celebration of Canada 150

    Community Paddle in Celebration of Canada 150 On the morning of September 9, 2017, members of the Old Ottawa East community will be dipping their paddles into the water to celebrate community spirit and honour Canada’s 150th Birthday. We will be paddling around Rideau Island, which is the land surrounded by the Rideau River on the east, the Ottawa River on the north, and the Canal on the east. Rideau Island includes the Byward Market, Sandy Hill, Old Ottawa East, Old Ottawa South, and Carleton University. You are invited to join and explore the waterways that surround our communities. The plan is to have each community launch their boats in their neighbourhood so that we have several flotillas making their way along the route.
