National Child Day, November 20

Children First Canada invites you to join them to celebrate National Child Day!

This year National Child Day marks a special milestone: the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child! On the heels of a federal election, Canada will also have a new government in place, making it a timely occasion to discuss the urgent, unfinished business of children’s rights in Canada. 

For more information, go to Children First Canada’s website at: https://www.childrenfirstcanada.com/events.

The future of our Central Library

Bookmark the Core

At an OCA Board meeting on 21 May 2015, we heard from a group called Bookmark the Core, a volunteer organization advocating for an “iconic” central library building located in downtown Ottawa. A motion was passed to endorse their mission.
If you would like more information on this group and would like to support them, go to http://www.bookmarkthecore.ca/get-involved.html.
