Who takes care of the maintenance of Kingsview Park?
The maintenance of Kingsview Park — and other NCC Rideau River shoreline properties from Highway 417 to Sussex Drive — is the responsibility of the City of Ottawa. The City applies its general park maintenance standards to our sites, but we can work with them to address any additional areas of concern in terms of maintenance. For any questions and concerns, you can communicate directly with the City of Ottawa via its 3-1-1 line, or contact the NCC’s client services at email@example.com, and our staff will ensure that appropriate action is taken.
What is the potential impact on our health?
With regard to contaminated sites, the potential health impact has to be determined on a case-by-case basis. For specific details about the potential impact on your health, please visit the Health Canada website.

How will the community be informed about the project as it goes forward?
