March 4th into a Healthy 2017 at the GRC


I would like to take a moment to invite all residents to join me at a special event taking place this Saturday, March 4th coordinated by my office with our community partners.


With 2017 now upon us we are leading into a year of celebration of not only 150 years of our history but the ever growing communities we live in.  More and more people are migrating to Ottawa to live, work and play.


In my capacity as Chair of the Board of Health I am working in conjunction with Ottawa Public Health (OPH) to hold an event that celebrates the many partners in our community who support a common mandate in the roles we hold working with our residents in the City of Ottawa – this is improving and supporting the lives of others.


On March 4th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM, I invite you to join me along with Ottawa Public Health and our various partners at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (1500 Shea Rd) – as we hold a health and well being fair entitled “March 4th into a Healthy 2017” – Here we will show case to the residents some of the many supports and health resources that are available for them.


OPH along with; the Goulbourn Recreation Complex program staff, Safer Roads Ottawa, Ottawa Fire Services, Western Ottawa Community Resource Center, Canadian Blood Services, Ottawa Police/Neighbourhood Watch, the Kidney Foundation of Eastern Ontario and The Trillium Gift of Life, the Distress Center of Ottawa, Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation and Heart and Stroke will be on hand to provide residents with information and guidance on the various resources and support they have to offer.


I hope to see you on March 4th and come and try our stationary bike smoothie maker!
