Family programs and services
For future parents and families with young children from birth to 6 years.
The City of Ottawa is planning for the new Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres (OEYCFCs) and needs to hear from you.
Public Health nurses will join us every Thursday afternoons 1:30-3:00 pm at the Ontario Early Centre at 270 Marier Ave and
every 3rd Monday of the month 9:30-11:00 am at the Richelieu Vanier Centre at 300 Des Pères Blancs Ave.
