As Ottawa and the rest of the world continue to respond to this unprecedented time in history, the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health are looking to learn more about your thoughts, perceptions and understanding of current restrictions in place related to COVID-19.

The City and Ottawa Public Health are currently exploring how we can safely reopen the city in a gradual, phased approach while aligning with the Province of Ontario’s framework for reopening the province

We want to hear from you about the changes you have made to protect yourself and your loved ones from COVID-19, how easy it has been for you to receive and understand information from different levels of government, what kinds of supports you have accessed, your ideas on how to maintain physical distancing into the future and much more.

Please check back regularly as we will update this page to seek ongoing feedback as we continue to navigate next steps.

    Thank you to Helen Barkley and Chris Humphrey for their volunteering during COVID-19.

    They have been helping to people in need with grocery shopping and delivery in our high rise building. Even though they could be considered as a vulnerable population, without hesitation offered their help to unknown neighbours.

    Home-made Masks go Fast

    by Soulful, about 1 month ago

    I would like to acknowledge my sister, Sandra Kerry-Lee Miller, who made over 50 masks that she gave to me to give to groups in need in my community. I know how to sew, but the ones she made had wire for your nose, and a pocket to insert an extra barrier such as a coffee filter. I started to try and make them myself, but I got all mixed up. This does take skill and she has it. Kerry is my hero because while most people are charging $5-$15 per mask, she did not want any renumeration for hers... Continue reading

    WorldSkills still helping newcomers seek work: virtual appointments thanks to Atoosa Adnani

    by Frances T, about 1 month ago

    As part of WorldSkills’ suite of coaching and assistance to newcomers who want to contribute their skills to Ottawa, volunteers meet one-on-onewith job-ready immigrants to tailor their resumes to Canadian employers’ tastes. Atoosa Adnani, who coordinates these appointments, had the brainwave that we can move them online. Either she will set up a Zoom meeting or we can agree with the client on a convenient platform and time. It’s been a great way to continue to meet new people and learn.

    Fantastic work by Jeff Leiper, his staff, and the volunteers in our ward

    by Concerned in Hintonburg, about 1 month ago

    Thank you so much for organizing volunteers to do food shopping for those of us who are voluntarily self-isolating due to elevated risks from age, chronic health issues, or living with someone who has those elevated risks.

    Food for thought! Covid 19, collab with coconut lagoon Chef Joe

    by E., about 1 month ago

    The Food for Thought net-café provides good food, cultivates community spirit and reduces the digital divide in under-served Ottawa neighbourhoods.

    During the COVID-19 crisis the café operations are closed, and they are redirecting all efforts to provide nutritious meals for those who need it. They target families that do not have cooking facilities and therefore face a daily challenge in feeding their children. More than 2000 residents live in family shelters in Ottawa.

    Award-winning Chef Joe Thotthungal, owner of Coconut Lagoon and Thali restaurants, leads a roster of well-known local chefs all giving generously of their time and facilities.
