Ecology Ottawa is a not-for-profit, grassroots organization working to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada since 2006. We believe that Ottawa residents are concerned about issues such as pollution, waste, and climate change, and that they want sustainable communities where clean air and water, public transit, renewable energy, recycling, and green space protection take priority. We provide residents with the information and tools they need to understand local environmental issues and promote environmental leadership at city hall.
