Neighbourhood Activities Suspended due to Covid-19

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all of CPCA’s usual activities that involve close contact between people (fieldhouse bookings, social activities, membership drive, spring clean-up, face to face meetings, etc.), have been temporarily suspended.

Some of our Board members continue to safely carry out routine administrative tasks and attend virtual meetings (FCA, City Committees, and other groups we are involved with).

We are monitoring public health advice as the pandemic evolves, and will keep you informed via the website and notifications of any updates and changes related to our operations.

Thanks to everyone in the community for your patience and the co-operative efforts we see as people retain physical distancing while still enjoying being out and about in our neighbourhood.

15-Minute Neighbourhoods Survey

Message from the City: 15-Minute Neighbourhoods Survey

The City of Ottawa’s goal is to become the most liveable mid-sized City in North America. To this end, the City has adopted the 15-minute neighbourhood concept, defined as “…neighbourhoods where you can access most of your day-to-day needs within a 15-minute walk from your home, on sidewalks and pathways, including when using a wheelchair or other mobility aids.”

We’d love to hear what makes a successful 15 minute neighbourhood for you! Please take a few minutes to complete this survey (External link), it will close on September 4th, 2020.
