About Us

Ottawa is home to Canada’s first official EcoDistrict.
In 2012 a group of volunteers came together who shared the dream of making Ottawa’s core a place to be truly proud of – a culturally and socially vibrant community that is not only inviting for tourists, but is also attractive to residents and businesses.

The Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict grew out of this vision.

The Ottawa Centre EcoDistrict envisions a smarter downtown for Canada's capital.
