Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG)

CAG's Mandate

The Community Activities Group of Old Ottawa East (CAG) is a not-for-profit,
community-based organization that works in partnership with the City of
Ottawa to provide the residents of Ottawa East with programming, recreation,
and special event opportunities that are local, affordable, inclusive and of
interest to members of our community.


For the Community by the Community

CAG responds to the needs of the community and strives to offer programs that appeal to children, youth, adults and seniors. CAG’s programming includes, but is not limited to, sports, fitness, and the arts. CAG events and programming aims to reflect the diverse nature of our community.

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.

  • Old Town Hall Community Center
    (61 Main Street, Ottawa, K1S 1B3)

  • Brantwood Park, Fieldhouse and Skating Rink
    (39 Onslow Crescent, Ottawa, K1S 1G3)
