Old Ottawa South Business Directory Launches Online

Local businesses, store-front and home-based, are an important component in this Old Ottawa South neighbourhood. Our intent in creating this directory, a voluntary initiative begun more than a year ago, has been to strengthen community relationships with these businesses and with the Old Ottawa South business community generally.

We hope the directory will become increasingly inclusive and interactive. Comments, new listings and corrections are always invited. Please help keep it up to date!

Consult the OOS Business Directory here: http://www.oldottawasouth.ca/index.php/businesses.


Chris Smith Contributes to the Community

Xmas-tree-funThere are a wide range of businesses within Old Ottawa South, some of which are not at all obvious from along Bank Street.

One of the most enthusiastic local entrepreneurs supporting our community is Chris Smith. He grew up on Glen Avenue in the 1970s, and he has spent many years working on a wide range of different types of jobs and helping out needy groups in too many ways to keep track.


Happy Holidays!

Holly  The Old Ottawa South Community Association wishes you and your loved ones all the best this holiday season and in the coming year.
