Parkinson SuperWalk Ottawa

28 08 2014


     Parkinson SuperWalk is Canada’s largest national fundraising event for Parkinson Society Canada and its regional partners. For the past 19 years, Parkinson Society Eastern Ontario has hosted highly successful SuperWalks in Ottawa. In the most recent years we have also expanded and currently host SuperWalk events in Cornwall, Brockville, Embrun and Renfrew as well.

      Parkinson SuperWalk is a chance for our community to unite and celebrate their hard work raising funds and awareness; a day filled with hope for a future without Parkinson’s. Funds raised at SuperWalk go to vital research, education, advocacy, and support services on behalf of the over 100,000 Canadians living with Parkinson’s disease as well as their 400,000 family members, friends, and caregivers.

      In Eastern Ontario, funds raised ensure that we can continue to deliver vital programs and services that create a better life and brighter future for more than 8,000 people living with Parkinson’s and their families. Equally important, funds raised will be invested in leading edge research for improved treatments and our hope for a cure for this serious neurological disease.

      If you would like to learn more about Parkinson SuperWalk please visit, I have also attached a package for you with plenty of details about our event and our organization.

Beyond Ottawa 20/20 ?

25 10 2007

Ottawa residents are invited to participate in the City’s review of the Official Plan – an important part of the Beyond Ottawa 20/20 initiative. The Official Plan is reviewed every five years as directed by Ontario’s Planning Act.

Two supporting documents, the Transportation Master Plan and the Infrastructure Master Plan are included in the review.

City Council wants residents to have their say in how the city should manage its growth and take part in influencing the policies and strategic directions that guide the Official Plan and all the Master Plans.

To start the consultation process, staff have prepared a number of White Papers, which explain a variety of issues and options on topics such as intensification, transportation challenges, the environment and climate change.

Residents have also prepared Discussion Papers with recommendations for changes to the Official Plan and Master Plans as a result of the Rural Settlement Strategy Workshop held earlier this year.

For more info, as well as a schedule of upcoming events, go to the City of Ottawa website.

Also worth checking out: Ottawa Talks. Post your thoughts in this online forum. [Edited to add: wow – the forum is surprisingly complicated to use. Anyone try it out yet?]

Do you live on Tweedsmuir Ave.?

9 10 2007

If you live on Tweedsmuir Avenue between Richmond Road and Currell Avenue and see someone taking pictures of your home it’s because the City has planned some infrastructure work for Tweedsmuir in 2008 (subject of course to budget restrictions)! You may see a new watermain and elimination of ditches.
