Ottawa Community Foundation and COVID-19 Responses

Tuesday, March 17, 2020 — Following the recommendations from Public Health Ontario with regards to social distancing, the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation for Healthy Communities has asked their employees who are able to do so, to work from home.

We will still have staff on hand to answer questions.

The health and safety of Foundation employees and the OCH tenants they support is our number one priority. We are following the lead of our partner organization such as Youth Futures – who have cancelled the program until April 5.

All City of Ottawa recreation programs have been suspended due to COVID-19 until Sunday, April 15. For the most up-to-date information on the COVID-19 outbreak, visit Ottawa Public Health’s dedicated web page.
