Founded in 1969 in response to threats to the ecological integrity of Gatineau Park, CPAWS Ottawa Valley is one of the region’s leading environmental organizations.

In addition, we firmly believe in connecting Canadians to nature through education programs and other activities. The organization currently has a staff of three and is based in Gatineau, Quebec.
