What We Do

What We Do - Ottawa River Keeper

Ottawa Riverkeeper is dedicated to protecting the health of the Ottawa River and its tributaries.

A healthy river is a river where you can take your family to swim, you can fish and eat the fish that you catch, and where the river and its tributaries provide people with a source of water that is both safe and abundant.

Our programs and activities are driven by our goal of swimmable, drinkable, fishable waters, now and in the future. To achieve this, we carry out a range of activities, from water quality testing, to court challenges, to education and outreach.
