Do you want to know more about taking care of your car? What about getting a better idea of what car repairs cost and why? Do you want to learn what to do if your car won’t start (even in really cold weather) or about tires and general maintenance?  

 If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”…. then you need to go to the Car Care Clinic being held at the Findlay Creek Canadian Tire!  On Thursday January 29 at 7:00 pm our Community Partner, Canadian Tire at Findlay Creek will be having an info session and demonstration to help with these issues. 

Come out and have a great time learning about basic mechanics and get expert advice from the expert mechanics at Canadian Tire!

 Space is limited to 25 participants – but future sessions will be held if there is interest.

Street and Winter Parking Concerns in the Community

by FCCA | 1 Comments


Since the January Newsletter there have been a number of residents who have voiced their concerns about street parking in the community.  Buses and garbage collectors as well as residents have all experienced difficulties navigating roads, especially now that the snow banks are growing and narrowing streets further.

As such, I’ve been asked to post the street parking by laws, which are in effect in conjunction with the winter parking ban – which is in effect Nov 15-Apr 1 if there is more than 7cm of snow forecast by Environment Canada (this includes forecasts of 5-10cm). Please be aware of the following street parking bylaw’s for the City of Ottawa:

Parking Prohibited – Whether Signs Have Been Erected or Not:

  1. In excess of three (3) hours between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.; 
  2. within 300 metres of previous parking space within one (1) hour; 
  3. within 9 metres of an intersection; 
  4. within 3 metres of a fire hydrant; 
  5. within 1.5 metres of a driveway; 
  6. on a roadway which is 6 metres or less in width; 
  7. on any portion of a highway not intended for vehicle parking; 
  8. during snow removal and street sweeping operations;
