It's time to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.

Lots of activities are planned to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday at Inspiration Village in the Byward Market. It's located on York Street and open until September.

Dads can also participate weekly in our child-friendly playgroup on Thursdays from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.  We also go on fun outings together (bowling, archery) and do some honest work around the centre by building stuff, staining wood, and more.

Farewell, Nurse Judy!
This month marks two important events in the life of Nurse Judy McIntosh. First, she is celebrating 50 years as a nurse, which is a very impressive accomplishment. Second, after 5 years with Bethany Hope, Nurse Judy is hanging up her scrubs, and retiring. 

We wish her the best of luck in all of her new adventures!

The Ottawa Police can help make your place more secure
Home security inspections allow you to take an active role in making your home less susceptible to criminal activity. Based on proven crime prevention principles, you can learn how to make your home safer.

At your request, Ottawa Police representatives visit your home (house, condo, apartment, etc.) to provide a safety audit - assessing ways to make your place safer. The audit is based on a checklist, and you will be provided with a booklet that identifies safety improvements, provides crime prevention tips and promotes other crime prevention initiatives offered by the Ottawa Police Service.
Contact your local Community Police Centre to schedule your free home security inspection today.  Click here  to see a list of the Ottawa Community Police Centres.

Abuse can't be tolerated.

Abuse can be: emotional like name calling, financial like withholding money,

Physical like hitting, sexual like unwanted touching or rape, psychological like stalking or even bullying.

Everyone deserves to feel safe. Many people think that they should not get involved, or are not sure what to do but if you or someone you know is experiencing abuse, tell someone or call police. They're there to help. Remember, you can always ask to speak to someone discretely if you want to report an incident of a sensitive, personal nature.

The Ottawa Police have prepared a list of the common signs and symptoms of various forms of abuse: (For details on each in the list below, please check here.

How to get your foot in the door

A résumé is all about getting your foot in the door by advertising yourself - who you are and why you're the best person for the job - to a potential employer. In order to stand out from other applicants, it is important to make a great first impression on paper.

For help creating your résumé, ask the Learning Coach to show and explain to you the instructions - along with examples - for putting together your résumé that are stored in our Computer Database.
