COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the City of Ottawa is committed to protecting our people and the community. The City of Ottawa has reviewed the essential workplaces information provided by the Province; construction on critical infrastructure projects – including roads, bridges, sewer, water, transit and transportation – falls within the exemption. As such, at this time, the City is not suspending work on these types of projects.
The City is working closely with the industry and complying with restrictions and recommendations provided by municipal, provincial and federal health officials, as well as the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
The City of Ottawa will be undertaking landscaping work associated with sewer renewal in the Crystal Beach neighbourhood.
