  • OSCA AGM Held Via Zoom

    OSCA AGM Held Via Zoom The 2020 OSCA AGM was held on October 20, 2020—but this year it was an AGM with a difference! Because of the restrictions encountered by COVID-19, an in-person AGM was impossible. The AGM is usually held in May but it was postponed this year in the hopes that the restrictions would be lifted and an in-person meeting would be possible. Finally, OSCA gave in and held the meeting in October.

  • OSCA Receives Generous Red Cross Grant for Spring and Summer Virtual Programs

    OSCA Receives Generous Red Cross Grant for Spring and Summer Virtual Programs The Old Ottawa South Community Association recently received an important grant from Red Cross Canada's COVID-19 Emergency Support for Community Organizations Granting Program for Non-Profits, made possible through funding from the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund led by Employment and Social Development Canada. This grant was awarded to OSCA for the effort made by staff to pivot from in-person programming to free or Pay-What-You-Can based virtual programming for the Spring and Summer sessions. The grant - worth a total of $44,942.88 - is a crucial part of the survival of OSCA, as it allows the association to cover some of the considerable fixed expenses associated with running these programs at no cost to the community, while having to operate on a severely reduced and unsustainable revenue stream. OSCA is extremely grateful to the Red Cross and the Government of Canada for awarding this generous and vital grant. On behalf of OSCA, President Richard Slowikowski wrote a thank-you letter, printed in full below.

Planning by Transect

One of the key cornerstones of the City of Ottawa New Official Plan is the Transect approach, which means the City will plan by context. This is a shift away from the previous approach of land-use planning in order to recognize the specific needs of neighbourhoods in different parts of the City. The Transect approach will focus on “form and function” by planning for the appropriate shape of new buildings, their relationship with public space, and how they function to be informed based on which Transect you live in. Six different Transect areas are proposed: Downtown, Inner Urban, Outer Urban, Suburban, Greenbelt and Rural. Register for the virtual presentation about the Inner Urban Transect, which would include Old Ottawa South.

How seniors are coping with the COVID-19 pandemic

Between May and June 2020, the team at Adele Furrie Consulting Inc. (AFCI) collected information to shed light on the impact COVID-19 has had on the lives of Ottawa seniors. Over two thousand survey respondents shared their stories and completed a second questionnaire in early August, again sharing their thoughts on what they needed to help them cope during the upcoming winter months. The AFCI team will share findings,  followed by a short talk from a representative of the Council on Aging of Ottawa's Social Inclusion Committee about the resources and supports that are available throughout Ottawa. Then, your questions, your suggestions, your coping strategies. Register to get the Zoom link.
