Community Associations for Environmental Sustainability (CAFES) is a network of residents and citizens’ associations in the City of Ottawa, established in 2010 and active on unceded Algonquin territory. Members of CAFES are community association environment committee chairs or green point persons in citizen associations. We also have individual members who are citizens active in their communities and concerned with living in ecological balance.

As of March 2021, there were over 200 members in our network, from 43 different community associations and 6 citizens’ organizations. Our members include representatives from urban, suburban and rural communities in the municipality of Ottawa.

What We Have Created

We created a vibrant website with green colour as the main theme reflecting the mission of CAFES Ottawa which is to make Ottawa, a city that is environmentally sustainable, where residents live together in neighbourhoods that are healthy, inclusive, and livable for all. We used Oxygen as our preferred wireframe.
