Have your say!

Respond to our survey on this year’s edition of Open NCC. The survey should take approximately five minutes to complete.

Join the NCC conservation team to learn about the important work we do in Gatineau Park to protect species at risk and manage invasive species. Celebrate Algonquin Anishinabeg culture and learn how to tan hides and make a birchbark canoe and snowshoes with one of the few masters of traditional canoe building.

While you’re there, drop by our NCC volunteer and recruitment kiosk to find out how you can get involved, or stop by the Friends of Gatineau Park kiosk to chat about their programming and advocacy.
