Dear Ottawa residents,

The Greenspace Alliance of Canada’s Capital remains a leading advocate of greenspace preservation and expansion in the National Capital region. Our primary aim is to conserve public and private greenspace. This includes natural and landscaped places deemed significant by a community. We also work to protect waterways and wetlands.

We believe that urban greenness is essential for a community's quality of life. Places of greenness contribute to our personal, social, economic, cultural and spiritual well-being. They also connect us with the natural and cultural history of our region.

This year we undertook a number of activities to help preserve significant greenspace in the capital and provided input on planning policy, tree protection, urban boundary expansion and other issues. The Greenspace Alliance 2013 Annual Report outlines these activities in more detail. You can read it online or download the PDF below.
