Who We Are

As a grassroots charity, Ottawa Riverkeeper brings together volunteers, communities, businesses and all levels of government to find solutions to the problems that threaten the health of our river.

The Ottawa River is the source of drinking water for several million people, and it provides us with a vast playground for everything from sailing and swimming to paddlesports and fishing.

But all these activities depend on clean water and a healthy river system, and the threats to the Ottawa River and the waters that feed it are pressing and real.

We bring together volunteers, communities, businesses and all levels of government to find solutions to the problems that threaten the health of our river and its tributaries.
