After 4 Update - Limited Spaces Starting in October

OSCA staff have been working hard with the Operations Committee and the Board to develop an operational plan to open After 4. After weeks of planning, we have a detailed plan that was recently approved by the Operations Committee, the OSCA Board, and the City of Ottawa. The operation plan follows all procedures and requirements set by Ottawa Public Health.

We are proud to announce that we welcomed our first cohort back to the Firehall on Wednesday, September 16th! If you would like to register for a spot in October, we urge you to do so as soon as possible, allowing us to create the next cohort(s).

The Big Myth about OSCA's Funding - President's Report September 2020

So what do you think is the biggest myth about the Old Ottawa South Community Association?

The City owns the Firehall and is responsible for the maintenance of the building. The City, however, does not cover the operational costs. Operational costs include: staff wages; instructor fees; program supplies; the equipment in the Fitness Centre; the pottery wheel and kiln; Amilia (the new program registration system); the website; computers; communication services; furniture; replacing kitchen appliances; etc.

We’ve also been hard at work planning next steps for reopening the Firehall. After much consideration and discussion, the Executive Committee, Staff and Board of Directors have decided to launch programs in four phases:

Working towards 2020 Fall Programming

Before March, before COVID-19, before the closure of City recreational facilities, and before the closure of The Firehall, OSCA’s Executive Committee met quarterly unless special circumstances demanded otherwise.

Once federal, provincial, and municipal governments (in collaboration with public health authorities) ordered an immediate lockdown, OSCA cancelled all programming, including the Firehall Fitness Centre, the Pottery Studio, as well as on-site Board and Committee meetings.

Thus began our virtual community lives by Zoom. The Executive now meets weekly - more often when required - and updates the Board of Directors on actions taken and makes recommendations/proposals to the Board.
