Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG)

The Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG) is a community-based, non-profit organization that works in partnership with the City of Ottawa to provide recreational and cultural programming in Old Ottawa East that is accessible, diverse and responsive to community needs and interests.

We work with community members, instructors, and partners to offer a range of activities for all ages and abilities. Information about what programming is currently being offered can be found here.

OUR STORY

CAG works with community members, instructors and partners to offer a range of activities for all ages - from playgroups for babies and preschoolers, to recreational child care programs for school-age children, to fitness, sports and general interest programs for children and adults, and free community events that offer opportunities for community engagement and volunteering, and a program of activities that are of interest to all community members.


The community of Old Ottawa East is located on either side of Main Street, east of the Canal, west of the Rideau River, south of Sandy Hill and north of Old Ottawa South. It encompasses the area that was once the Village of Ottawa East. Main Street was the main street of the village and the name remained after it was annexed to the City of Ottawa because Ottawa had no other Main Street in 1907.

 

CAG programs, events and activities take place at:

  • Old Town Hall Community Center at 61 Main Street

  • Brantwood Park, Fieldhouse and Skating Rink, 39 Onslow Crescent

  • Springhurst Park, 24 Brunswick Street
