We, all of us at OSCA (staff and volunteers), want to thank Old Ottawa South once again for your generosity to the “Save Our Firehall” campaign. Your pledges and contributions have surpassed $110K. That’s a lot to be proud of! You have made it possible to keep our doors open.

To those of you who pledged your support on a monthly or recurring basis, thank you for your ongoing support. No amount is too small and every donation adds up. It’s a tremendous financial and moral "boost" as we strengthen our capacity to offer more programs and services.

Safety remains our top priority and we continue to meet and even exceed Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 recommendations. We look forward to seeing more of you.

  • Fieldhouse Consultation: The Results Are In!

    Fieldhouse Consultation: The Results Are In! Thank you to everyone who gave their feedback in the latest round of public consultation for a replacement fieldhouse at Windsor Park. At the time the online consultation closed on 12-November-2021, the working group had received responses from 118 residents of this community. Among these, 29 supported the first option (the biggest one, at 2,466 sq. ft.), 35 preferred the second option (2,394 sq. ft.), while 30 picked the third option (the smallest at 1,507sq. ft.). From the comments provided, an additional 13 respondents wanted a smaller facility supporting outdoor programming only with no indoor programming space, while 11 other respondents felt unable to support any of the three options that were presented.
