Champlain Park Community Association (CPCA)

The Champlain Park Community Association (CPCA) was founded in 1991. The core interconnected goals include: to foster sustainable living, to enhance our environment and to nurture biodiversity in our unique mature urban forest; to cultivate a community where people want to stay and grow and know and interact with their neighbours; to strengthen relationships with other communities, leaders and organizations; to act as responsible asset-keepers and strong organizers, who maintain open lines of communication and accountability with neighbours; to respond to infill development proposals and engage residents, developer and lawmakers in dialogue. To achieve its goals, the CPCA organizes various annual social events, sports and hobbies; it organizes an annual Spring clean-up of the Ottawa River waterfront and celebrates National Tree Day by planting trees in association with the local school; it liaises with other communities and elected leaders; its executive members participate in and serve on various city-wide boards.
