Perks

CCOC offers tenants a variety of “perks” through our partnerships with community organizations. Learn more about the advantages offered to you as a CCOC tenant below.

Irving Greenberg Memorial Camp Fund

CCOC offers a summer camp bursary in memory of Irving Greenberg. To be eligible to apply for this bursary you must be a CCOC tenant, and your child (or children) must be 8 to 15 years old. If your child is selected, you are responsible for finding a camp that suits you and your child. We will pay up to $800 toward the camp fees and transportation.

Priority is given to families paying less than market rent and to children who have not already been sent to camp under this program. Contact Meg for more information.

Camp bursary forms open in February.

Ottawa School of Art Bursaries

The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) offers 15 bursaries each year for CCOC tenants and their family members residing with CCOC. Adults are eligible for a $150 bursary, and children are eligible for full course fees. Bursaries will be awarded according to need.

Tenants who are selected for a bursary will have to pay the OSA membership fee of $30 and the applicable taxes. To apply, you must fill out an OSA bursary form at the Ottawa School of Art, located at 35 George Street. These forms become available in September.

Reduced Rate Y Memberships

CCOC tenants can obtain Y memberships at the Y Active Corporate Rate. This includes unlimited access to 7 local facilities, 3 fitness consultations, swimming lessons, programs for children and youth, specialty classes and more. For more information, call 613-237-1320 ext 5128. Bring a copy of your most recent lease renewal to the Y membership desk and ask to sign up for the Y Active Corporate Membership.

25-Year Tenant Recognition

In 2014, we began an initiative to celebrate those tenants who have lived in CCOC homes for 25 or more years. Taking advantage of a new program by the Bank Street BIA, we bought $100 gift certificates to be used at the many wonderful businesses along Bank Street. We continue to recognize those tenants who have spent 25 years with us through this program.
