    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.

Books and Songs to your Home this Winter

The creative folks at the Ottawa Public Library are reaching their community through engaging early childhood literacy programs both online and directly into homes during the pandemic even though we can only visit the library to pick up or drop off books.

No Re-Opening Yet for the Library

No Re-Opening Yet for the Library

UPDATE: As of Monday, November 16, 2020, the Sunnyside Branch is open for contactless returns and pickups of holds.

The Sunnyside Branch of the Ottawa Public Library was scheduled to open in August 2020 but due to staffing challenges in the context of COVID-19 the timing of re-opening will be determined at a later date.
