OSCA's mission is to build a strong sense of community and engage the residents of Old Ottawa South through our various programs, services and activities. 

The Old Ottawa South Community Association (OSCA) is a group of community volunteers whose goal is to make Old Ottawa South (OOS) a pleasant, fulfilling, and meaningful place to live. OSCA operates out of the Ottawa South Community Centre, aka the "Old Firehall", at 260 Sunnyside Avenue. OSCA is managed by a group of volunteers from the community, who form the OSCA Board of Directors and Executive. A variety of committees made up of interested board members and residents, help run OSCA's activities. 

OSCA's committees are: 

Communications, Finance, Planning and Zoning, Programming, Traffic and Safety.

We strive to improve the quality of life in our community in a variety of ways including: 

Social events; educational, sports, fitness, and recreational programming; enriching after school and before school programs, camps and PD day programs; working actively to promote, communicate and protect the interests of the community, especially with regard to planning and future developments; to keep the community informed about activities and opportunities of interest; to initiate new programs and policies from time to time to benefit the community

Together the Board and Committees provide strategic direction and ensure organizational accountability to support our staff who manage the operations of the organization.

  • A commitment to OSCA's mission and vision;
  • The ability to commit a minimum of 6 hours per month (more for Executive Committee members); and,
