Ottawa Riverkeeper invites you to take part in these important upcoming events. Together, we can make a difference!
On the occasion of the eve of the Autumn Equinox, Elder William Commanda conducted a Pipe Ceremony at the Launch of the Algonquin Canoe Protest Against the Proposed Uranium Mine in Frontenac County. Protesters have paddled down the Mississippi River, into the Ottawa River and will be arriving at Victoria Island on Thursday afternoon, September 27th. Signing of the Proclamation for a Moratorium on Uranium Mining is starting at 6pm and going on until midnight.
The march to Parliament Hill will take place on Friday morning September 28th. Gather at Victoria Island at 9:30a.m. Ottawa Riverkeeper will be joining the protest march. You can also join the Rally at Parliament Hill at noon. The paddlers will continue up the Rideau to the Odawa Friendship Centre for the “Power to Choose Ottawa Forum”.

Kettle Island is situated in the Ottawa River, just downstream of the city centers of Gatineau and Ottawa. It is beautiful and badly in need of stewardship and care.
Grab your canoe or kayak and join our clean-up efforts at the third annual Fall Paddle and Garbage Pick-Up. No canoe, no worries, we will shuttle participants to and from the island by motor boats from the Ottawa and Gatineau shores.
If you need a boat or you intend to be on the island for lunch or if you need further information, please contact volunteer event coordinator Laurel Rosene. Pre-registration is strongly recommended to help us arrange the shuttle and food details. Please contact us by October 10th if you plan to participate.
