Canada's Capital Greenbelt is the most ecologically diverse area in Eastern Ontario.
My earliest memories are of spending time in the outdoors and feeling happy. As a young child, I spent summers with my family at the Philippe Lake campground in Gatineau Park. It’s fitting that today I find myself working for the NCC as a nature interpretation program officer in Gatineau Park.
Gatineau Park is a rich and unique area, with a long history.
From October 3 to 25, 2020
Gatineau Park has a long human history.
The NCC has teamed up with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority to design and construct a wetland in the headwaters of Black Rapids Creek, located in the Greenbelt. The wetland will fulfill the following functions: improve water quality, provide rare wetland habitat along the Black Rapids Creek system, increase overall biodiversity.
As a Crown corporation, the NCC is subject to the Access to Information Act, the Privacy Act and the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act, as well as Government of Canada directives on proactive disclosure. These rules aim to strengthen public sector management by enhancing transparency and oversight of public resources in the federal government.
Extend your outdoor adventure and spend the night in Gatineau Park – just minutes from downtown Ottawa-Gatineau. Nestled in the heart of a vast conservation park, campsites and ready-to-camp units are the perfect getaway from the daily routine, in every season.
