Given the exceptionally rapid spread of the Omicron COVID variant in Ottawa and Ontario, and the uncertainty with respect to how this will impact the risks we face locally in the delivery of recreational programming, OSCA has decided to postpone the start of its Winter programing for adults, youth and children from Monday, January 3 to Monday, January 17, 2022 as a safety measure to protect our clients and staff. As a result, winter programming will be extended for two weeks longer than normal and finish on Friday, April 1st, 2022.
For the first two weeks of January only the Fitness Centre will be open for use, with a limit of 2 persons at any one time who must social distance and follow all screening and other safety protocols.
The City of Ottawa is working on the Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and is looking for public input. The TMP is the city's overarching policy over the road, sidewalk, and bike lane development and design. A draft policy document is available for review on the project website.
The recent public health protocols have led to the Scottish Society of Ottawa’s cancellation of the Great Canadian Kilt Skate scheduled for January 8th at Lansdowne. Kiltskaters are still encouraged to send photos and videos of their individual kiltskates to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Accompanied by Elsie Reford and Hélène Jasmin, we take a stroll into Elsie’s gardens, following the development of her major, ambitious projects (such as her Gentians Garden). She was both innovative and traditional; her success with the Himalayas Blue Poppy became her trademark.
