Who we are

At the annual Great Glebe Green Garage Sale

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

We believe that Ottawa residents 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, 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.

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; we bring 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.
