Council Watch

CityHallEcology Ottawa recognizes the power Ottawa City Council has to make Ottawa an environmental leader.

We’ve made it part of our mission to encourage citizens to engage with city council and advocate for the adoption of environmentally sound policies.

Ecology Ottawa is committed to fostering respectful and productive relationships with all members of council. We are also committed to maintaining our role of monitoring council through our Council Watch team which monitors what goes on at city council, reports, and thus holds council accountable for its environmental performance.

The Council Watch team attends the meetings of the Environment Committee, Planning Committee, Transportation Committee, Transit Commission, and full City Council. They and other Ecology Ottawa supporters also monitor media and internet reports of council activity.
