Community Associations for Environmental Sustainability


The CAFES The point-person on water is Mary Hegan and you can reach her at Water is life and Ottawa is the city where three rivers meet. From stormwater protection to flooding, which we expect more often with a variable climate, to microplastics in our water, to the protection of wetlands, to protecting the Ottawa River from nuclear waste risks, water issues are numerous, important and all around us. 

CAFES is a member of the City of Ottawa external stakeholder consultation group on stormwater management and will support the City in the pilot and roll out of the Rain Ready Program in 2021. Details to come.
