Reminder – Dogs MUST be on Leashes at all times.
Message from the Champlain Park Community Association
City of Ottawa bylaws and rules established by the National Capital Commission require dog owners to keep their dog on a leash at all times while in our neighbourhood. This applies to streets, to the Champlain Woods and to the Tunney’s Pasture parking lot, where dogs must also be on leashes at all times. The Park in our community is designated as a “No Dogs allowed” space, as is Remic Beach.

March 18, 2020: As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, watch out for associated scams. Fraudsters want to profit from consumers’ fears, uncertainties and misinformation. Fraudsters are exploiting the crisis to facilitate fraud and cyber crime.

From city councillor Jeff Leiper https://kitchissippiward.ca/content/ward-volunteer-call-out
Many of you have reached out in the past few days to let me know you’d be willing to volunteer in the ward. We don’t know, yet, what those needs might be, but I’d like to now start capturing that interest in anticipation of future need. If you live in Kitchissippi ward and want to volunteer here, please fill out the form here. Thank you!
There is also the potential that the City may have a general call-out for volunteers as they mobilized for flooding. If and when that call is made, I’ll be sure to pass that on!
