  • Should we make OOS a model community for healthy aging?

    Should we make OOS a model community for healthy aging?

    Seniors Watch of Old Ottawa South believes that healthy aging, community involvement and economic regeneration are synergistic. We would like to demonstrate this by making Old Ottawa South a model age-friendly community as we rebuild from the pandemic. Our group of volunteers are working to identify needs as well as creative responses. We need to hear from everyone - seniors and others - who have an interest in making the neighbourhood an even better place in which to raise their families and grow old. Click here to fill out the survey!

 SAVE OUR FIREHALL

We’ve come a long way since March of last year.  The Firehall is now offering summer camps and activities and preparing for Fall programs: in person and online. All of us at OSCA (staff and volunteers) thank you for your support and generosity. Your pledges and contributions have surpassed $85,000.

This summer the majority of our summer camps are outdoors at Windsor Park. Safety remains our top priority and we continue to meet and even exceed Ottawa Public Health COVID-19 recommendations. Our staff to child ratio is 1 to 5. We look forward to seeing you again this summer and fall.

Ottawa's New Official Plan

Some sections of the final draft of the new Official Plan, which will help shape our community over the next 25 years, have been released. Its policies affect each and every one of us in Old Ottawa South, determining what is allowed to be built where.

Thanks to an incredible volume of input from our community and others, some things have changed since the first draft—the Transforming Overlay originally imposed on our neighbourhood has been removed and density requirements have been lowered and are now targets.
