Vision Statement Navan
Navan Community Association
The Navan Community Association was formed to create a voice for the residents, with a greater impact, and a vision of making Navan a wonderful place to live.
The Navan Lions Club sponsored a public meeting in April 1996, which indicated a need and desire to form a Community Association.
With the guidance of Diane Huffman from the South Nation Conservation Office, by March 1997 progress was under way to create a constitution. Several Lions played a key role in the creation and sustaining of the organization.
The purpose of the forming of the Association was to:
- Empower the community to have a voice with governments
- Utlize community resources and business
- Build capacity
- Raise awareness and educate all ages
- Build a sense of pride
Regular meetings are held the 3rd Monday of every month at the Navan Memorial Centre Hall upstairs starting at 7:30.
November 12, 2001 the Association became incorporated.
Need help clearing your driveway this winter?
The Snow Go program helps seniors and people with disabilities find a reputable and reliable individual or contractor to clear snow from their private driveway and walkway. The City of Ottawa
partners with the Senior Citizens Council and local home support agencies to deliver this winter program.
Eligible low income seniors and persons with disabilities can also apply for the Snow Go Assist Program and receive financial assistance for snow clearing. Approved participants may be reimbursed for 50 per cent of the cost of snow clearing, up to a seasonal maximum of $250. Low income is defined as an annual income of below $25,000 for a single individual and below $32,000 for a household (two or more persons). An Older Adult is considered any person over the age of 60 years.

Domes of Navan
The Cumberland Township Historical Society has recently produced a booklet telling the story of how the "Domes of Navan" found their way from LeBreton Flats to the Navan Fairgrounds back in 1984. Anyone who likes the Navan Fair (and let's face it that's just about everyone) will find this to be a nice read on a bit of local history from the mid 1980s, and a great gift idea for friends and relatives. You can pick up copies of these booklets at Bradley's Store or by calling Verna Cotton at 835-2490 or Ross Bradley at 835-2199. The price is $20 or 2 for $30.
