Kids Yoga ~ Spirituality with a Twist ~ Everything I wished I’d learned when I was a young girl
A few of the things included in this 12 week program for girls ages 10-13:
January 2020 will mark the beginning of a new era for Capital Daycare, as the former cooperative officially amalgamates with Andrew Fleck Children Services (AFCS). The merger of our local daycare—which has been operating for over 45 years in the basement of Trinity Anglican Church—and the largest non-profit childcare provider in the city of Ottawa bodes well for the future of one of our neighbourhood’s most cherished institutions.
Our 2020 Summer Camp Guide is available online now. We’re excited for another summer at OSCA! Last year will be hard to top, but we’ve been planning even more fun adventures and activities for you in 2020.
OSCA's Planning and Zoning Committee has called on the City of Ottawa Agriculture and Rural Affairs and Planning Committees to be more cognizant of climate change and more clear about how its proposed policies would affect neighbourhoods in a submission to a joint meeting of the two bodies. There was little time given to review the new official plan and only five days allotted for public review and comment.
Osborne Street in Old Ottawa South has a lovely park that runs midway down Osborne to the banks of the Rideau River. It is a small park, too small really for a field house or recreational facility, but just the right size for neighbours to share a common green space.
My name is Katie Stewart and I am a member of the Stairwell Carollers. I have lived in Old Ottawa South my whole life and I am a former student from Glebe Collegiate Institute. I first sang with this amazing choir in May 2017, as a member of the Glebe choir when we performed together with the Stairwell Carollers.
As part of the City of Ottawa infrastructure work in the northwestern area of the neighbourhood, a couple new bicycle lanes are being added to the road network. Now in place is the section on Seneca Street, southbound, from Sunnyside to Cameron Avenue.
The Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department offers the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process. The program is a series of half-day courses.

GivingTuesday: OSCA is Raising $2,000 for a New Kitchen Stove & for the Annual After-Four Turkey Dinner
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
