Active City Pathmaker - Ecology Ottawa

Active City Pathmaker

Ottawa has a Riverkeeper to advocate for a safe and healthy river – we need a Pathmaker to do the same for our streets!

It’s a sad fact. Ottawa – a city of one million people – lacks a full-time advocate dedicated to improving the health and safety of its streets for cyclists and pedestrians. Ecology Ottawa wants to create a position to speak up for pedestrians and cyclists, and we’re looking for 200 Trailblazers from across the city to step up and make a contribution.

We’re calling on Ottawa’s cyclists and pedestrians to come together and fund a full-time position that will help ensure Ottawa’s streets are safe and healthy now and into the future. We’re looking for 200 Trailblazers who will commit to donating $1 a day, about half the cost of a daily cup of coffee (a monthly donation of $31). Trailblazer donations will:

  • Help ensure that cyclists and pedestrians are prioritized when streets are re-built in neighbourhoods across the city
  • Keep the public in the loop on policy developments at City Hall and impacts on Ottawa’s streetscape
  • Pressure the City to make and implement the right decisions
  • Help ensure the City delivers on their promises for cycling and pedestrian infrastructure

Will you step up and make Ottawa a better place for cyclists and pedestrians? Sign up today! 

We're looking for monthly donors, but you can also make a one-time donation by clicking here.
