Who?

Ecology Ottawa is a not-for-profit, grassroots and volunteer-driven organization.

Its work focuses on Ottawa residents, who are concerned about issues such as climate change, pollution and waste, and that they want sustainable communities where clean energy, air, and water, public transit, active transportation and greenspace protection take priority. Ecology Ottawa provides residents with the information and tools they need to understand local environmental issues and promote environmental leadership at all levels impacting the City of Ottawa.

 

What?

The work with Ecology Ottawa is to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada.

 

How?

The focus is on communities ‑‑  to create a mobilized constituency of Ottawans who demand action and leadership on the environment. Ecology Ottawa engages thousands of Ottawa residents each year at the door, at events and through their community associations. The aim is to help Ottawans know what local environmental issues are top of mind, and what can be done about them.

The work includes watching what city hall is doing. Cities are where most Canadians work, live and play. City governments have immense power over our collective response to challenges as wide-ranging as climate action, biodiversity protection and urban sprawl. For these reasons, Ecology Ottawa watches over and engage closely with Ottawa City Council.

Partnership is key. The environmental crisis can only be solved by an engaged community working together across various sectors and levels of government,  to engage and mobilize support from Ottawa residents, political representatives, local businesses, community associations, industry and professional associations, cultural groups and citizens groups.
