Future Seniors Affordable Housing Being Planned in Capital Ward and Old Town Hall Saved

For Immediate Release

On Monday, Capital Ward Councillor Shawn Menard joined councillor Mathieu Fleury, le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) representatives on a tour of the Deschâtelets Building in Capital Ward. This heritage building is being refurbished to house a new elementary school, a community centre, new daycare spaces and affordable housing. Through an innovative partnership between le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est, Ottawa Community Housing and the City of Ottawa, we are working towards the Deschâtelets Building becoming an intergenerational hub to serve the growing community of Old Ottawa East.

Brewer Park and Arena

Recently there was an erroneous news report regarding Brewer Arena. Brewer Arena had been converted to a COVID-19 testing site at the outset of the pandemic. Presently, Brewer Arena is returning to its regular usage. The city has re-started the rink, and we expect ice use to resume this month. Public Pool use returned earlier this year.

The testing centre and testing kit distribution is continuing at a trailer in the Brewer Academy parking. This should not have an impact on the arena or the pool, and we look forward to having the arena back in full operation imminently.
