Watch for the 2022 Origin-Destination Survey

The City has launched the 2022 Origin Destination Survey as part of the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) udpdate.

This important travel survey is being carried out jointly by the major transportation planning agencies within the national capital region. The goal of the survey is to understand how, where, and why residents travel. The survey asks questions about residents’ households, as well as the trips made by household members. The survey results will help the City make informed decisions on road, transit, pedestrian, and cycling improvements and is a key input for the next phase of the TMP Update, developing the Capital Infrastructure Plan. Households are being chosen at random to take part and residents may receive a letter or phone call inviting them to participate.

Ancient Verona in Old Ottawa South: A September evening with Romeo and Juliet

Ancient Verona in Old Ottawa South: A September evening with Romeo and Juliet

Good news! The City of Ottawa has withdrawn the Bylaw charges against The Company of Adventurers from two years ago. We would like to extend our enormous gratitude to Emilie Taman of Champ and Associates and Michael Polowin of Gowling WLG for steadfastly supporting and defending us pro bono these last two years. This process took a very long time and entailed a great deal of work, in part because of delays related to the COVID-19 situation. Thank you, both! We would also like to say a huge thank you to Sunnyside Wesleyan Church for offering us their space for rehearsals during the height of the heat this past August. For two years, they’ve extended compassionate support to us when we needed it. Thank you, Sunnyside!

We will be offering the community one weekend of shows at our residence at 57 Glen Avenue this Sept. 9, 10, and 11; and a second weekend at The Gladstone Theatre, Sept. 16, 17, and 18. The hiatus of the past two years has left us sorely missing our neighbourhood gatherings. Please come out and see us!

The Old Ottawa South community and The Ottawa Centre Minor Hockey Association (OCMHA) have been struggling to find a local, convenient and reasonably priced skate sharpening establishment over the last few years. The pandemic has exacerbated this as many of the local shops and smaller arena run shops have closed. From discussions with community members, an idea was born to launch a community owned and operated skate sharpening initiative, run by volunteers.
