ROSSS Walk of Care

Important documents: 

Get involved!
Walk of Care Pledge Form
Walk of Care Registration Form

More important details:

This year’s walk scheduled for September 9th with the funds raised from the walk going to support our transportation and caregivers programs.

Last year ROSSS provided over 15,000 drives to seniors and adults with disabilities and offered over 6,000 hours of respite for caregivers.   

Current data shows that 15.4% of Ottawa’s population are seniors. This number is expected to double by 2031 to 250,000 seniors. As a result of this services and programs like transportation and caregiver support are critical to helping seniors age in the communities they have called home for their whole lives.

  • In Ontario, 65% of seniors over the age of 65 who receive care identify transportation as their number one need. (Hudson & Milan, 2016)
  • 29% of Ontarians act as unpaid caregivers for family members, neighbours, or a friend (Statistics Canada, 2013)
  • Richmond Ontario has the highest percentage of seniors living alone in the ROSSS catchment area at 18.1% the total number of seniors in Richmond is 1210 (Statistics Canada 2011b)
  • Manotick is home to the highest number of seniors with 1410, 11% being over the age of 85. (Statistics Canada 2011b)
  • Greely and Metcalfe have 1000 and 670 seniors respectively with 16.4% and 13% being over the age of 85.

Date: September 9
Location: Osgoode Multi-Use Pathway (besides Osgoode Youth Association)
Time: 9:30 am (registration and pledge form drop off)
10:00 am (walk starts).

We hope to see you there!

Living with Wildlife in Munster - Information Session

Living with Wildlife in Munster - Information Session

One of the best things about living in Munster and the surrounding area is our ability to enjoy nature. Our proximity to open spaces and the creatures within them is a never ending source of enjoyment for many of us. But it is also a source of concern for some as we encounter raccoons, skunks, coyotes, fishers, foxes and even bears and moose. How can we continue to enjoy our abundant wildlife while minimizing risk to pets, property and people? 

Coexistence with wildlife is the topic of an information session that will be held at the Munster Community Centre on Wednesday July 26. 

Trevor Horvatin, Wildlife Specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry (MNRF) will join us to discuss ways to successfully coexist with the wildlife in our area.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend.

What:  Living with Wildlife Information Session
When:  Wednesday July 267:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Where:  Munster Community Centre
Who:  Trevor Horvatin, Wildlife Specialist, MNRF
RSVP: Patty Townsend at Mrtown16@gmail.com

The Munster Community Association thanks Patty Townsend for organizing this information session for the community.
