    OSCA's PAY WHAT YOU CAN Campaign!

    We believe that offering community programming is essential now more than ever. So do our instructors who overwhelmingly responded to our call to offer programming on a “pay what you can” basis. As such, 70% of fees received will go to instructors and the remaining fees will go to supporting OSCA programs and initiatives in the future.

Hogs Back Dam and Fixed Bridge Rehabilitation

Hogs Back Dam and Fixed Bridge Rehabilitation

If you are a user of Hogs Back Park, please see this message Parks Canada recently sent:

"November 28, 2018 – This week, the contractor for the Hogs Back Dam and Fixed Bridge rehabilitation project will begin installing the cofferdam on the south side of the dam. This work requires the movement of heavy machinery across the multi-use pathway next to the staging area, southeast of the dam. In order to preserve public safety, the contractor will utilize flagstaff to control pedestrian traffic when heavy machinery is crossing. Pedestrians can expect brief intermittent delays during these times."

Back to School

As young people head back to school this fall, a few changes have been made relating to traffic that will make their journey a little safer.

You'll notice that a second adult crossing guard has been added mornings and afternoons at Bank Street & Sunnyside Avenue. A request placed by the Councillor’s Office was reviewed last spring and City staff responsible for School Zone Traffic agreed that the intersection warranted a second crossing guard. Ian and Andrew have been hired to fill these positions.  Please take extra care at this very busy intersection.
