Based in Ottawa, Ontario, Forêt Capitale Forest aims to mitigate the effects of climate change by facilitating the planting of forests and raising awareness of the importance of trees and biodiversity.
Our vision is that by 2030, we will create an additional 1,000 hectares of tree cover in East Ottawa, helping to mitigate climate change and conserve biodiversity.
We have built strategic relationships with organizations in Eastern Ontario to build a full lifecycle program around the establishment of new forested areas, tailored to Ottawa.
Our plan of afforesting 1,000 hectares roughly equates to 1 million trees and is scalable. Our vision mirrors the mandates of the NCC and City of Ottawa, and aligns with the federal government’s pledge to plant 2 Billion Trees by 2030. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have some of those trees in Canada’s capital?
