Ecology Ottawa is not-for-profit, grassroots and volunteer-driven
What We Do
We work to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada.
How We Do It
We watch what city hall is doing: We celebrate the environmentally responsible decisions and actions; webring to light the things that hurt our environment; and we advocate to our politicians at all levels of government.
We work with individual people: In neighbourhoods all across Ottawa we work with people one on one so that we know, and they know, and their neighbours know, what the local environmental issues are; and more importantly what can be done about them.
We work with partners: Supportive City Councillors, MPs and MPPs; local businesses; community associations; industry and professional associations; cultural groups; and citizens groups are among those that Ecology Ottawa reaches out to and works with on our common environmental goals.
