Anti-Poverty Initiative

The Anti-Poverty project is an initiative from the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres of Ottawa, based at the RCR Rideau-Rockcliffe. It aims to address poverty at the local level and improve access to affordable and nutritious food for low income families. In order to achieve this goal, the Good Food Markets and the MarketMobile initiatives were established.

Rideau-Rockcliffe Community
Resource Centre is moving!

The Centre is moving from Donald Street to the new Rideau Community Hub at 815 St. Laurent Blvd. This is the former Rideau High School on St. Laurent near McArthur. 

We will be closed from December 23 to January 5 and will start serving clients from the new location on January 6, 2020.

New location, same services

The centre will have the same:

  • Programs and services
  • Staff and volunteers
  • Website and phone number

We are excited to serve clients at our new location. We serve residents in city Ward 13, where the city councillor is Rawlson King. This runs from highway 417 up to the Ottawa River (except Vanier) and from the Rideau River east to Blair Road. We are currently in the southern portion of this area and the new location is more central.

Carson's Community House will remain at 710 Carsons Rd.

Getting to the new location

Our new location at 815 St. Laurent Blvd has more parking. And, it’s served by several bus routes.

Bus 7 passes directly in front of 815 St. Laurent Blvd. Buses 14, 19, 20 and 27 run nearby.
