  • Check in our BIPOC/immigrant/refugee communities
  • Connect with community resources
  • Assist with financial aid applications

Solidarité communautaire Overbrook est un groupe qui vise de faciliter l’entraide et le soutien entre les voisins d’Overbrook pendant la crise du COVDID-19. Nous nous basons sur des principes de justice sociale de solidarité et d’entraide.

Voici certaines façons qu’on peut s’entraider

  • Livrer des épiceries et des fournitures essentielles
  • Appels avec nos voisins malades et isolés
  • Appui aux communautés racisés, immigrantes, ou réfugiés
  • Faire des liens aux ressources communautaires
  • Soutien pour les demandes d’aide financière

Il existe déjà plusieurs autres groupes de solidarité pour la ville d’Ottawa, notre but est d’être un groupe qui se limite au quartier d’Overbrook.

    • Adult fitness stations

Walkthroughs permitted – maintain physical (social) distancing

  • While the parks are closed, you are able to walk through them. Safe park practices that are permitted includes running, walking or jogging through the park, while keeping a two-metre distance from others – which is equal to the length of a hockey stick.

Canada’s Emergency Response Plan Is Enacted

This week, Parliament passed the legislation to put in place Canada’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Plan.

Canada’s Emergency Response Plan provides immediate help to Canadians and businesses who are most in need as a result of COVID-19. At the same time, Bill C-13 ensures that our Government has the tools and flexibility to respond to any emerging challenges. We will do whatever it takes to protect and support Canadians during this challenging time.

Key Measures

Support for individuals and families

Support for businesses

  • Temporary wage subsidyProvided for three months to eligible small employers. Eligible employers include small businesses (including co-operative corporations) eligible for the small business deduction, unincorporated employers, – certain partnerships, non-profit organizations and charities.
  • Credit flexibility to support businesses: Provided as necessary through EDC, BDC, Farm Credit Canada and the Canada Account.
  • Please talk to your bank for additional support options.

Additional actions to support the health and safety of Canadians and the economy

  • Help prevent shortages of patented drugs or medical devices
  • Support provinces and territories with a COVID-19 Response Fund including one-time funding of $500 million through the Canada Health Transfer.
  • Increasing the protection of Canadians’ savings by providing the Minister of Finance with the flexibility to increase the CDIC’s deposit insurance limit.
  • Allowing us to respond rapidly to COVID-19 developments by providing the Minister of Finance with additional flexibility to provide financial support.

Best wishes,

Rawlson King, City Councillor for Rideau-Rockcliffe

Alors que nous approchons de la fin de notre deuxième semaine de travail à distance, et de la distanciation physique (sociale), il est plus important que jamais que chacun fasse sa part pour protéger les plus vulnérables de notre ville.

Si vous croyez que vous présentez des symptômes du coronavirus (COVID-19) ou si vous avez été en contact étroit avec une personne l’ayant contracté, servez-vous de cet outil d’autoévaluation pour vous aider à déterminer si vous avez besoin de recevoir d’autres soins. https://covid-19.ontario.ca/autoevaluation/#q0

Parcs de la Ville

En raison de la pandémie de la COVID-19, tous les parcs de la ville et leurs installations sont désormais fermés jusqu’à nouvel ordre, par contre il est permis de les traverser, tout en respectant la distanciation physique (sociale).

Terrains de sport et de balle

  • Parmi les installations et les espaces fermés, on compte :
    • les terrains de sport publics – y compris ceux situés dans des installations récréatives
    • les terrains de balle
    • les terrains de basketball et de tennis
  • Ce genre d’espaces et d’installations encouragent les rassemblements et leur utilisation en groupe, ce qui contrevient aux mesures de distanciation physique (sociale) prises afin de freiner la propagation du coronavirus (COVID-19) à Ottawa.

Structures de jeux et équipement de parc

  • La fermeture s’applique à toutes les structures et à tout l’équipement de parc, notamment :
  • les structures de jeu
  • les balançoires
  • les glissades
  • les grimpeurs
  • les stations de conditionnement physique pour adultes
  • les bancs et les tables à pique-nique
  • les planchodromes
  • les aires pour chiens sans laisse
    • L’équipement de parc et les structures de jeu favorisent une utilisation par plusieurs personnes. Mais, plus important encore, leurs surfaces ne sont pas nettoyées et pourraient propager la COVID-19.

Passages autorisés – maintenir la distanciation physique (sociale)

  • Bien que les parcs soient fermés, il est permis de les traverser. Les pratiques sûres permises dans les parcs sont la course à pied, la marche, le jogging tout en maintenant une distance de 2 mètres avec les autres, l’équivalent de la longueur d’un bâton de hockey. Vous pouvez également promener votre chien dans les parcs, là où il est permis de le faire, tout en respectant les exigences en matière d’utilisation de la laisse des lieux.

Lancement de la campagne publicitaire et de la page Web Acheter local

  • Le jeudi 26 mars, la Ville d’Ottawa en partenariat avec le Groupe de travail des partenaires économiques, a lancé la première phase d’une campagne publicitaire en ligne visant à aider les entreprises locales en ces temps
  • La campagne encourage les résidents à soutenir leurs petites entreprises favorites en prenant immédiatement des mesures concrètes :
    • acheter en ligne auprès d’entreprises locales;
    • acheter des cartes-cadeaux auprès d’entreprises locales qui pourront être utilisées plus tard;
    • faire livrer par des restaurants locaux ou aller à leur comptoir pour emporter;
    • envoyer aux entreprises locales des messages de soutien sur les médias
  • Ces mesures aideront les magasins, les restaurants et les services locaux en leur procurant des revenus critiques pendant cette période difficile.
  • La campagne comprend des publicités ciblées qui joindront les résidents sur plusieurs plateformes en ligne au cours des prochaines semaines et les dirigeront vers ottawa.ca/acheterlocal. Les résidents y trouveront des liens vers des sites qui répertorient les entreprises qui servent leurs clients virtuellement ou qui fournissent des plats et des repas pour
  • La Ville a également lancé une page Web sur ottawa.ca pour donner aux entreprises l’accès à des renseignements essentiels et de programmes de soutien. La page comprend des liens vers les programmes d’aide provinciaux et fédéraux, ainsi que des détails sur les mesures offertes par la Ville pour aider les entreprises au cours des prochaines semaines et des prochains mois. Ces renseignements comprennent le report de l’impôt foncier et les autres mesures d’allègement que le Conseil a approuvé à sa réunion du 25 mars

Overbrook Covid-19 Update

Follow us on FacebookTwitter and through our Google Calendar

After opening the first Community Assessment Centre on Friday in Ottawa, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has announced there are at least 13 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa. This number shows us that there are likely more travel-related cases that have gone on to cause local transmission of the virus in Ottawa. 

More importantly, OPH has stated the number of actual cases of COVID-19 in Ottawa could be higher than one thousand.

With this in mind, OPH has asked that all residents increase their practices of social distancing, and not go out for any non-essential reasons to reduce the spread of the virus. Social distancing includes, but is not limited to:

  • Talk to your supervisor, manager, or employer about the possibility of working from home where possible.
  • Avoid sending children to daycare, if you are able to.
  • Avoid visits to Long-Term Care Homes, Retirement Homes, Supportive Housing, Hospices and other congregate care settings unless the visit is absolutely essential.
  • Avoid non-essential trips in the community.
  • If you have to go into the community for an essential trip via taxi or rideshare, be sure to keep the windows down.
  • If possible, limit or consider cancelling group gatherings.
  • If you have meetings planned, consider doing them virtually instead of in person.
  • When possible, get fresh air outside but in settings where people can maintain a 1-2 metre (3-6 feet) distance from each other.

It takes all of us doing our part to limit the spread and the damage of COVID-19. While you may not feel sick, please be mindful of the members of our community who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 than others. We are all in this together.

If you can, donate to the Ottawa Food Bank, this is a period where the need is especially high https://www.ottawafoodbank.ca/donate/

Overbrook Community Association (OCA) Update

  • All OCA events and meetings are cancelled until further notice
  • Our newspaper will be published at the end of March, we are looking for volunteers to help deliver them. If interested, please reach out to info@overbrook.ca

Neighbourhood Update

  • Rideau Rockcliffe Community Resource Centre has suspended all of their operations and services due to the fact that one of their staff is ill and had been in contact with all of their other staff. They are currently working on an alternate solution to the currently unavailable food bank.
  • You can access the services of the Eastern Ottawa Community Resource Centre in the meantime – https://eorc-creo.communitysupportservices.ca/

Provincial and Federal Update

Service Canada has set up a SEPARATE phone line to contact them to set up EI claims for quarantine, illness, work closure, etc due to COVID-19.
They will not help you with anything else at this number.
Likewise, the main EI number cannot help you with COVID-19 claims.

The number is 1-833-381-2725.

There is over an hour average wait time to speak to someone at the main number, so please take some of the load off them and use the COVID-19 # if that is what you need to talk to them about.

They are waiving the 1 week waiting period for 2 week quarantines, so if you are affected, apply right away.

Invitation to Celebrate International Mother Language Day 2020 in Ottawa through the Lens of Intercultural & Intergenerational Dialogue

Can Ottawa be a role model in creating a society of Intercultural and Intergenerational harmony? 

We believe that Ottawa is ready to create a meaningful and flourishing society which can serve as a role model for the rest of the world.

On Saturday 22nd February 2020, we are committed to show how we, as a diverse but integrated group of Canadians, can make a positive impact in the lives of millions living in this age of unthinkable opportunities. We would like to show how the growing interconnectedness among us is shining a bright light toward a yet to be realized shared outcome; a goal is being created by the hearts and minds of caring and responsible individuals as we all work with our good intentions. 

On behalf of Pro-active Education for All Children’s Enrichment (PEACE) and Bangla Caravan, may we sincerely invite your participation so this goal can be revealed, a gem in the making by our combined efforts. At the end of our event, we are confident that this purposeful and fun exercise we are proposing will show us some answers to the question: what can we do to make us all win together?

      We suggest a Venn diagram approach to display our organizations’ interconnectedness to one another. We will discover exponentially more than we know now, and then we can consciously create pathways and partnerships to intensify our efforts, increase our efficiencies, and create an ocean of possibilities.

 Please note that the event will be taking place on Saturday February 22nd, 2020 from (3:00 to 8:00) pm at Rideau Community Hub (former Rideau High School) at 815 St. Laurent Blvd., Ottawa. For the details of the event, please refer to the attached postcard.

One Thousand Women: The state of housing and homelessness for women in our city.

Many women are often are not counted among homeless in Ottawa. Researchers in Ottawa have brought to our attention that many homeless women couch surf with friends for a week here and there with their kids in tow.  Uncounted and underserved until they have worn out their welcome.

On Thursday, March 5th at 6 pm, at Ashbury College, 362 Mariposa Ave, Cornerstone  will be hosting, along with Harmony House, and Interval House of Ottawa, a panel called One Thousand Women: The state of housing and homelessness for women in our city. 

CBC’s Rita Celli will moderate, plus Kaite Burkholder Harris will be our subject matter expert, as Co-Lead of Linking Leaders

One Thousand Women become homeless in Ottawa each year.

Right now, our city is experiencing a housing crisis and we have declared a housing emergency . We collectively need to discuss the issues of homelessness and lack of affordable and supportive housing – especially for women. 

We know from experience, that when you give a woman a safe, permanent home, they can heal and recover. With support and a fixed address, women can access help like counseling, mental health, drug and alcohol recovery, education and work services
