Protecting greenspace in Ottawa-Gatineau since 1997

Welcome to the Greenspace Alliance of Canada’s Capital – an organization of individuals and citizens’ groups working to protect significant green spaces in the national capital area.

We try to provide sensible, reliable information, and have earned a reputation for it in city planning circles. Our members include scientists, journalists and economists. We are not opposed to development – in fact, we support good planning and a rational, sustainable relationship with our environment in order to create livable, breathable urban spaces.

Our website offers a lot of information on things happening right here in Canada’s capital and environs, much of which you will not find in any paid publication or government website. Here’s why: we do not rely on advertising or corporate contributions, all work is done on a volunteer basis, and we have nothing to hide.

We hope you find this site enriching and useful.
