Old Ottawa South Community Association

A Season for Family, Friends and Community

A Season for Family, Friends and Community

Dear Community,

I hope you are well and in good spirits this festive season.

We recognize that the provincewide shutdown beginning December 26th will be in place for the next several weeks. We’ve made it this far as a community, and OSCA is committed to continuing to do all we can to keep our community safe. We are paying careful attention to the new regulations and will be communicating updates on a regular basis.  The centre will remain closed until the restrictions are lifted. We will continue to run programs virtually. We will be in touch with clients of After 4 with pertinent updates.  Don’t forget to follow us on social media or go to oldottawasouth.ca for regular updates.

We Continue To Be Here For You - OSCA Staff Update

The Firehall is closed. Our March Break camps were cancelled, as well as the remainder of our Winter Session Programs. And with the extension of the closure of all of the City’s recreation centres until at least June 30th, we have now also had to cancel our Spring programs. But as we are sure you know, OSCA’s staff have been as busy as ever these past few weeks.

OSCA Available By Phone Again

The closure of the Firehall has had a huge impact on all of us and like many, we are all missing the connections that our community space provides. As you have probably seen in the news, the City of Ottawa has announced that all recreation facilities will be closed until at least June 30th, 2020, and this includes the Firehall. One of the consequences of the closure is that we also do not have access to our phone line to answer questions and provide assistance.
