OSCA has talented staff who…

Don’t take it for granted

Don’t take it for granted

We all lead busy lives, especially parents of young children. Among the things that makes our lives easier is living in a wonderful neighbourhood, and having the children’s and adult’s activities offered at the Firehall.

The Big Myth about OSCA’s Funding – President’s Report September 2020

So what do you think is the biggest myth about the Old Ottawa South Community Association? Most of the people I talk to in the neighbourhood think that OSCA is funded by the City of Ottawa. Here is the reality. The City owns the Firehall and is responsible for the maintenance of the building. The City, however, does not cover the operational costs.
