"Your" new location: Announcement April 30, 2022
Good afternoon, Members.
It's now official !
This morning, representing the Barrhaven Seniors' Council, I attended the official announcement of funding for your new 3,000 square feet Seniors Space within the integrated project the "Barrhaven Town Centre."
From Councillor Harder about today's announcement: "This new cultural hub will include the construction of a 15,000 square foot cultural centre, a 3,000 square foot seniors’ space, and an over 25,000 square foot library. Once complete, this project will provide residents in Ottawa with a cultural hub that will foster social interactions and community engagement for years to come."
This is the culmination of many hours of work behind the scenes by many groups representing a variety of interests.. On your behalf, since 2016 Consultant Phil Denyes and I met with various organizations and representatives of all levels of government to encourage an integrated project initially called the Barrhaven Community and Cultural Centre - which would include a large, permanent space for seniors.
Throughout the years since we first began planning for a permanent location for the "Barrhaven Seniors' Centre," we have enjoyed the strong support of M.P. Chandra Arya, MPP/Minister Lisa MacLeod, and Councillor Jan Harder. On your behalf, I would like to thank them for their dedication in seeing this integrated project come to life - not only for the seniors, but for all citizens of Barrhaven.

Location: Behind the Cineplex/LCBO/Loblaws.
Funding is the critical step in moving this project into reality. There will be much work to do in the coming years to ensure that the seniors component provides a hub for all seniors in Barrhaven. I will keep you up-to-date as events unfold.
