Farms in the Greenbelt are a symbol of Canada’s rural traditions, and they provide an example of how to practise viable and diverse agriculture in a near-urban setting. The Greenbelt also ensures that there is a space in Ottawa where farming can supply part of local food needs.
Canada's Capital Greenbelt is the most ecologically diverse area in Eastern Ontario.

The NCC has developed a model that provides unique opportunities for new farmers to establish farms on quality farmland within 10 minutes of downtown. The NCC has recently embraced a shift toward local and sustainable food production, and we are looking for tenants who are experienced and ready to start their own farm.
Our communications team is ready to help the media with information about the NCC, interview requests or story ideas.
Invasive alien plants can cause serious economic, social and environmental damage. Over 60 invasive alien plant species have been recorded on NCC lands.
