The Plan will focus on addressing local priorities related to:
1. Discrimination, marginalization, and racism
2. Financial security, and poverty reduction
3. Gender-based violence and violence against women
5. Integrated and simpler systems
6. Mental well-being (including substance abuse and social isolation)
CAWI will be conducting the following virtual consultation sessions, please use the links below to join any of these conversations.
The City will be holding six bilingual online facilitated consultation sessions to get your opinions and ideas on the City’s first-ever combined Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan (PRFMP), in support of the new Official Plan (OP).

It is difficult to express our disappointment and outrage at the senseless disregard for the huge efforts of the volunteers to get the rink ready for the community.
As you know Marc Blais and his team have been working tirelessly to get our Outdoor Rink ready. Yesterday the rink was closed for maintenance. Marc sent us this message this morning.
"Last night, between 4-7pm, I had kids on our closed ice, and also kids driving their cars on our freshly flooded ice."
We are very happy to announce that the Cumberland Outdoor Rink is officially open tomorrow thanks to the tireless work of Marc Blais. He has put in a huge number of hours including a couple of 'all nighters', watering every few hours to build the base. We express appreciation for his hard work on behalf of all the users. There have been lots of kids out already. We hope a few more people will step up as we have 23 out if 64 - 2 hour shifts - left to fill for supervising. If you offered to help earlier, please respond to our follow-up emails.
Just in time for Christmas the Cumberland Township Historical Society has published its latest book on the early history of the township including meticulously detailed family trees of 72 founding families of Cumberland Village, Bearbrook, Navan, Leonard, Sarsfield, Vars, and St.-Joseph d'Orléans. Congratulations to CTHS for this comprehensive work.

Healthy habits are important to protect yourself and others from potentially harmful germs. Germs are types of microbes, such as bacteria or viruses, which can cause diseases. They are spread directly from person to person, or indirectly by touching a surface that has been contaminated with them. Harmful germs can sometimes lead to serious illness, particularly in vulnerable populations such as young children, the elderly, or people with underlying medical conditions.
Dear representatives of Ottawa’s Community Associations,
In June 2019, City Council directed City staff to retain an independent consultant to conduct a comprehensive review of the City of Ottawa’s ward boundaries. The review is meant to establish boundaries that could be used in at least three municipal elections (2022, 2026 and 2030) and, perhaps, a fourth municipal election in 2034. The last major review of Ottawa’s ward boundaries occurred in 2004-2005.
