The DCA, in conjunction with theĀ Centretown Community Association (CCA), jointly own and operateĀ The Centretown BUZZ, a monthly, non-profit community newspaper serving the neighbourhood of Centretown in Ottawa (from north of the Queensway, from LRT Line 2 to the Rideau Canal). The papers are delivered by volunteers from the DCA and the CCA, and most of the content comes from the community as well.

About The BUZZ

The Centretown BUZZ covers community news and events, local history, and issues affecting Centretown residents. They publish regular reports from the DCA, CCA, our city councillor, and our MPP, and we feature several regular columnists. Other organizations and individuals contribute on an occasional basis, and a small team of writers and photographers covers news and current events.
