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.

Good afternoon,

It has been another beautiful week, and with the Province moving forward with Phase 2 of re-opening, more of us are going out.  However, we still all need to stay safe and respect social distancing.

Ottawa Public Health is recommending everyone to wear a mask where physical distancing is not easy to maintain.  For more information on direction from Ottawa Public Health please check out their website: https://www.ottawapublichealth.ca/en/public-health-topics/masks.aspx?utm_source=OPH&utm_medium=Friendly_URL&utm_campaign=Coronavirus&utm_content=Friendly_URL

Although many of our neighbours can access and purchase cloth masks, there are thousands in our community who cannot.  The Human Needs Task Force is looking for donations of cloth masks to distribute to residents who have no other means. These masks will be distributed throughout the city to community partners who will connect with people who have no other means of accessing a cloth mask.
