The National Capital Commission (NCC) has started the initial work on developing a plan for the Sir George-Étienne Cartier Park. This Plan will re-envision a linear park along the riverfront that will look at environmental protection and management while planning for animation of the Ottawa River through recreational opportunities and by reconnecting people to it.

About the consultation process

Consultation and Engagement

The NCC planning and consultation process will be launched in the Fall of 2021. In anticipation of that, we would like you hear from you to understand your use of the SGEC corridor.


Available online until September 12, 2021.

For the next round of public consultation, we will be looking for your ideas and suggestions as to what the park’s planning opportunities and challenges are as well as what a preliminary vision should be. At that point, we will be able to share more information to help the public provide meaningful feedback and ideas.

A detailed schedule of the consultation process and opportunities to be a part of the discussion will be shared in the coming months.
