    We still have a long way to go

    All of us at OSCA (staff and volunteers) thank you for your generosity. Your pledges and contributions have surpassed $65,000! We still have a long way to go but you have added the equivalent of six additional weeks – that’s a lot to be proud of!



We are now “ringing the bell” and calling on all residents to help Save Our Firehall! We need your help to keep our community centre open. Restrictions due to COVID-19 have had a huge impact on our Firehall’s ability to sustain itself. To thrive, the Firehall relies on revenues from the programs it delivers. The City owns the Firehall and maintains it but doesn’t cover operational costs. If we are to make up the shortfall in operational costs, we need to fundraise. How can you help? You can help by pledging your financial support on a monthly basis. No amount is too small or too big. Every donation counts. Monthly pledges add up over time and with many families pledging their support we can make sure that our community centre remains open in 2021.

Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee Community Report 2016


The OSCA Traffic and Safety Committee has been representing Old Ottawa South at the Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee (LTMOC) for a little over two years.  Each spring LTMOC presents its Annual Report to the Transportation Committee at City Hall.  The community groups and associations participating at LTMOC meetings also develop community reports and these are included with LTMOC’s Annual Report.

When LTMOC’s Annual Report is presented to the City’s Transportation Committee, the communities also have an opportunity to present in person their summations of the year’s activities and to respond to questions from the Transportation Committee.

Early in March, OSCA’s 2016 Community Report was submitted to LTMOC and can be read in its entirety here at www.oldottawasouth.ca.
