• Preferred proponent recommended to design new central library

    Ottawa –– After a review of 33 submissions from architectural firms from around the world, and a shortlist of five finalists, the Evaluation Committee for the new joint facility shared by Ottawa Public Library and Library and Archives Canada has recommended entering into negotiations with the consortium of Diamond Schmitt Architects and KWC Architects, from Toronto and Ottawa, respectively.

    Following a two-phase procurement process for professional design services that was overseen by an external Fairness Commissioner, Diamond Schmitt Architects – KWC Architects, as the highest-ranked proponent, has been selected to work with the public and partners to design the joint facility.

    In 2017, City Council and the Ottawa Public Library Board approved partnering with Library and Archives Canada to build a new joint facility to serve as a national institution, a city-wide resource and a community gathering space.

    This collaboration will provide the Ottawa Public Library and Library and Archives Canada with a unique, state-of-the-art facility that brings together the creative services of a public library and the public services of a national library and archives for a richer customer experience. The total project budget, including parking, is $192.9 million.

    The facility site, located at the corner of Albert Street and Commissioner Street at the southeastern edge of LeBreton Flats, within 300 metres from the Confederation Line’s Pimisi Station, has been designated with a new address: 555 Albert Street (formerly 557 Wellington Street).

    The Ottawa Public Library and Library and Archives Canada joint facility is expected to open in 2024.

We are proud to be playing an important role in creating a showplace for Canada’s culture and heritage, which will be enjoyed by both local residents and Canadians from across the country who are visiting Ottawa.”

  • Catherine Wilcox reçoit le Prix de bâtisseur de la Ville décerné par le maire

    Le maire d’Ottawa et le conseiller du quartier Knoxdale-Merivale ont remis à Catherine Wilcox le Prix de bâtisseur de la Ville décerné par le maire lors de la réunion du Conseil d’aujourd’hui en reconnaissance de sa contribution à Ottawa au moyen de la musique et de la sensibilisation.

     

    En 2008, Catherine Wilcox lançait le Ottawa New Horizons Band. Initialement un programme de sensibilisation de l’Église unie Dominion-Chalmers, l’orchestre a accueilli des adultes ayant peu ou pas de talent musical et leur a offert l’occasion d’apprendre à jouer d’un instrument de musique. Après des débuts modestes, le programme qui comprenait 35 adultes a pris de l’ampleur. Maintenant après 10 ans d’existence, le Ottawa New Horizons Band s’est développé et compte plus de 200 membres et huit orchestres. La société sans but lucratif fonctionne maintenant avec un budget annuel de près de 100 000 $, grâce au dévouement et au leadership de Mme Wilcox.

     

    Chaque année, au moyen de concerts, Mme Wilcox et le Ottawa New Horizons Band recueillent de l’argent pour des organismes comme OrKidtsra et Chiens-guides canadiens pour aveugles. Mme Wilcox a pour responsabilité de découvrir et recruter des chefs d’orchestre et de leur offrir de l’encadrement, d’organiser des concerts, d’acheter des instruments, de trouver des salles de répétition et d’organiser des rencontres.

     

    Mme Wilcox se soucie profondément de tous les membres du groupe. Durant les 10 dernières années, plus de 700 adultes ont participé à l’un ou l’autre des orchestres. Lorsque l’un des membres est malade ou stressé, Mme Wilcox leur rend souvent visite, leur apporte un repas, de la compagnie et de l’écoute. Nombre de participants sont des aînés et remarquent que les répétitions et les prestations de l’orchestre leur procurent une activité plaisante tout en amoindrissant leur isolement et leur sentiment de solitude.

     

    Le Prix de bâtisseur de la Ville décerné par le maire est une distinction civile qui vise à reconnaître un particulier, un groupe ou un organisme qui, par ses services bénévoles exceptionnels ou ses initiatives exemplaires, a fait preuve d’un engagement profond envers notre ville afin d’en faire un meilleur endroit aujourd’hui et pour l’avenir.

The non-profit corporation now operates with an annual budget approaching $100,000, thanks to Mrs. Wilcox’s dedication and leadership.

  • Ottawa Wolves RFC to Host 2020 Bingham Cup Rugby Tournament

    World’s largest amateur rugby tournament promotes inclusivity and equality.

    OTTAWA, October 4, 2018 – The Ottawa Wolves RFC has won the hosting rights for the 2020 Bingham Cup, the world’s largest amateur union rugby tournament.

    The Ottawa Wolves RFC are the first Canadian inclusive rugby club to host the Bingham Cup and follow other inclusive rugby clubs that have successfully held the biennial tournament, located in cities such as London, United Kingdom; New York, U.S.A; Dublin, Ireland; Sydney, Australia; and Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

    The Bingham Cup is an international gay rugby union tournament that promotes inclusivity, equality and competition. Seventy rugby teams from five continents are expected to participate in the 2020 Bingham Cup.

    “Having the oppurtinity to host the Bingham Cup in Ottawa is an honnour for our City,” said Mayor Jim Watson, who was on hand for the announcement. “This event will bring excitement, spirit of competition and economic benefits to Ottawa, and allow our residents to enjoy world-class rugby matches.”

    Administered by International Gay Rugby (IGR), the Bingham Cup is named in memory of Mark Kendall Bingham, a former University of California, Berkeley rugby star and cofounder of the Gotham Knights RFC, a gay-inclusive rugby club in New York City. Mark Kendall Bingham lost his life in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks onboard United Airlines Flight 93.

    “The international gay rugby community is excited that the Bingham Cup will be held in Canada for first time – a country with a growing rugby community and a proud reputation of openness towards the LGBT+ community,” said Ben Owen, IGR Chair.

    First held in 2002, the Bingham Cup is today the largest international amateur rugby union tournament in the world. The 2018 tournament hosted by the Amsterdam Lowlanders RFC had more than 2,300 registered participants from 63 countries. The 2020 tournament in Ottawa will include week-long cultural, educational and sporting events and is forecast to generate economic activity in excess of $8.5 million. The 2020 tournament will also be carbon-neutral, feature a wheelchair rugby exhibition game and celebrate Indigenous culture.

    “The Bingham Cup promotes the values of inclusivity and equality regardless of sexual orientation, and those are values that Canadians support wholeheartedly,” said The Honourable Catherine McKenna, federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Member of Parliament for the riding of Ottawa Centre.

    One of only three gay-inclusive rugby clubs in Canada, the Ottawa Wolves RFC was engaged in an extensive bidding process to win the rights to host the 2020 Bingham Cup in the nation’s capital. Other gay-inclusive rugby clubs in Canada include the Montreal Armada RFC and the Toronto Muddy York RFC.

    “This is a truly historic moment for both rugby and the inclusive sports movement in Canada,” said Jean-François Laberge, past Captain of the Ottawa Wolves RFC and President of the Bingham Cup Ottawa 2020 Bid Committee. “Hosting the Bingham Cup reinforces that Canada is an open, inclusive and welcoming country.”

    The Ottawa Wolves RFC was founded in 2008. The club competes in the regular Division 1 Eastern Ontario Rugby League and has competed in tournaments locally, nationally and internationally, including every Bingham Cup since 2010. The Ottawa Wolves RFC is part of IGR, a member of the Federation of Gay Games and recognized by World Rugby as their lead LGBT organization.

    “Bringing the Bingham Cup to Canada is a major boost for the sport of rugby in this country,” said Tim Powers, Chairman of Rugby Canada. “Rugby is truly an international game with the values of inclusiveness and respect at its core. It’s a sport that transcends issues of sexuality and gender and celebrates diversity.”

    Other dignitaries who attended the announcement of the 2020 Bingham Cup coming to Ottawa included Jacques Frémont, President of the University of Ottawa; Darrel Cox, Manager, Sport and Culture, Tourism Ottawa; Ian Faris, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ottawa Board of Trade; and representatives from numerous Ontario and Quebec rugby clubs.
