March 13, 20202  – COVID-19

Special Notice from YOMA Board of Directors
Programs suspended

In light of recent events all City of Ottawa Recreation and Cultural Facilities will be closed to the public beginning on March 16 until the end of day on April 5 2020.  This includes Manotick Community Centre (Arena) where YOMA programs are held.

The health and safety of our staff, your youth and your families is of great importance to us.  We at YOMA have made the decision to suspend all YOMA programs until April 17 starting today.  Tonight’s program has been cancelled

We will continue to monitor the situation and will adjust our plan accordingly based on the most current information available.

We believe this decision is the right thing to do to help keep our community safe and healthy.

We will send updates and will email another notice when we are resuming our programs.  We encourage you to check this website over the coming days or follow us on social media.
