ATV pilot project for Osgoode Ward

City Council approved a by-law on June 26, 2013 permitting the use of All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) on City of Ottawa roads and road allowances in Osgoode Ward on a trial basis. On November 25, 2015, City Council approved an extension to the trial period and modifications to the by-law.

Until November 30, 2017, the by-law permits all-terrain vehicles on a trail network of roads and road allowances in Osgoode Ward. There are certain restrictions in place. These include:

  • Permitted ATVs and other off-road vehicles on the trail network are as defined by the provincial Off-Road Vehicles Act and Highway Traffic Act.
  • Speed limits of 20km/h on municipal roads with a Highway Traffic Act speed limit of not greater than 50km/h.
  • Speed limits of 50km/h on municipal roads with Highway Traffic Act speed limit of greater than 50km/h.
  • ATVs are only permitted to use the trail network from 8am to half an hour after sunset.
  • ATVs are not permitted to use the trail network during spring thaw.
  • ATV operators must be a member of a recognized ATV Club.
  • No ATVs with modified exhausts or two-stroke engines are permitted on the trail network.
  • ATVs can only operate on the trail network as identified on the map in Schedule “C” of the by-law

For complete information, please refer to the Temporary All-Terrain Vehicles & Other Vehicles By-law no. 2013-199

If you have questions or comments about the ATV trail network in Osgoode Ward, please contact the City of Ottawa at ATVNetwork@ottawa.ca.

Rural facilities and event planning

Booking of arenas, parks, sports fields and ball diamonds

City Wide Allocations can provide you with information regarding the rental rates and booking of arenas, sports fields, ball diamonds and park permits. Bookings are done on a first-come-first-served basis.

Staff are available Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm by phone at 613-580-2595, or by e-mail at sports@ottawa.ca

Please note: Some rural sports fields and ball diamonds are administered by local community associations and are not booked through City Wide Allocations. Please refer to the rural facility contacts chart for information on who to contact depending on the location.

Rental of rural halls and buildings

Most city-run recreation centres provide rental information and details about their facility. More information and rates can be found on the Parks and Recreation facility rental page.

However, some rural community associations receive funding to maintain and run programs in city-owned buildings or halls within their communities. Please refer to the rural facility contacts chart for information on who to contact depending on your facility requirements.

Accessibility

The City of Ottawa ensures that all major recreation complexes, administrative buildings, community centres, libraries and long-term care facilities are accessible. For more information, contact the City of Ottawa Accessibility Office

Rural special event resources

If you’re planning a special event in your community, see all the resources below.  

Planning an outdoor special event

The City’s Event Central division has developed an application process designed to help groups identify their needs and approvals required to ensure your outdoor special event runs smoothly. 

Municipal alcohol policy

If you are planning an event that involves serving alcohol on municipal property, please refer to the City of Ottawa’s municipal alcohol policy

The policy outlines the appropriate measures that must be taken by the sponsor hosting an event where alcohol is being served on city premises. The Your Planning Guide to Hosting an Event directs City staff and community partners through the booking process for these events.

Smart Serve® alcohol serving course

The Smart Serve® Ontario program has a responsible service training certificate program for anyone in the province who serves or works with alcohol. Certification courses can be completed online, or through a video training kit (also available in French) which is suitable for individual or group training. 

Food premise regulations – farmers markets and community events

On June 15, 2006, the Ontario Ministry of Health stated that farmers markets, service clubs, religious organizations and fraternal organizations or any event open to the public can be exempt from the “rigid requirements of Regulation 562 (Food Premises)”. 

Events such as potluck dinners, church suppers, community picnics and bake sales “will be protected by the overly-aggressive inspections from public health officials”. Public health inspectors will advise community groups on food safety.

Requirements for exempt groups

“When high-risk food is served at a special event that does not originate from a food premise that is inspected under the Food Premise Regulation, these organizations are now required to post a notice stating whether or not the facilities have been inspected by the local public health unit”. 

Organizers are also required to keep a log of providers of high-risk foods to be given to the local public health inspector upon request. Foods generally considered high-risk are:

  • Those that contain raw eggs (i.e. custards, salads)
  • Dairy products (i.e. cakes made with whipped cream, cheese or synthetic cream fillings)
  • Meat, poultry and fish (i.e. fresh or processed meat, sausages)

Farmers markets are still required to follow the Health Protection and Promotion Act (HPPA). 

For more information, contact the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

Certified food handler training

The Food Handler Certification program is an excellent opportunity for food handlers to learn how to prepare food safely.  

Rural facilities contact information

Many of the following rural facilities are subject to individual operating agreements with the City. Please note that booking and rental procedures, fees and services may vary.

For other, arena and sports fields booking information not listed below please contact City Wide Allocations. If you need to update your contact information, please send an e-mail to ruralaffairs@ottawa.ca.

Community outdoor rink program

The City of Ottawa Parks and Recreation branch values the role that the community plays in the outdoor rink program. We encourage service partnerships with community associations, non-profit organizations, service clubs, volunteer groups and sports leagues. The City supports community groups that want to operate an outdoor rink with funding, tools and access to lighting and water. Rink sponsors are responsible for maintaining the ice surface and supervision of the program.
