For more than a decade, Ottawa Riverkeeper has worked with volunteers, communities, businesses and all levels of government to protect, promote, and improve the health and future of the Ottawa River. Through the Aeroplan Beyond Miles program, you can now donate the Aeroplan points you earn on your everyday purchases to Ottawa Riverkeeper. With this new convenient means of fundraising, our mission to protect Ottawa’s water will soar to new heights.
The points you donate will support our work to safeguard our right to clean water.
It’s easy to donate. Simply visit our charity’s Aeroplan profile and select the amount you wish to contribute. With so many ways to earn Aeroplan points, it’s never been easier to contribute to the health and protection of the Ottawa River.
And great it is. 1,271 kilometers long, with over 300 species of birds, 96 types of fish and a watershed larger than England, the Ottawa River’s wild beauty has become an integral part of our lives. It’s the source of drinking water for several million people, and provides us with a vast playground for everything from sailing to 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.
By donating your Aeroplan point today, you can help create a swimmable, fishable, and drinkable river for generations to come. Thank you.
