Located just outside of Ottawa, 10 minutes from the Ottawa international Airport and near the scenic Village of Manotick, the Rideau Valley Conservation Centre (RVCC) offers a unique environmental setting for your next meeting or retreat. The RVCC is a gold level LEED certified building — the first in eastern Ontario.
What is Leed?
LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and is considered the worldwide standard in the construction of sustainable buildings. LEED is all about reducing or eliminating the negative impacts of building materials and the construction process on the occupants of the building.
Green Features — Inside and Out
Our energy and water efficient facility offers a large meeting room, an outdoor courtyard, kitchen and lobby area. Our outdoor space opens to the Beryl Gaffney Park and lovely walking trails that lead to the shore of the Rideau River. The RVCC is a nice departure from the concrete jungle.
The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority has been caring for the environment for over 40 years. Part of our commitment to the environment includes respecting the ecosystem we operate in and lessening our impact on it. That’s why, it is only natural for us to build a “green” building — one that saves energy, improves efficiency and reduces waste. We welcome you to our building for your next meeting or staff retreat. By choosing our facility for your meeting, you have helped to continue the RVCA’s efforts in conservation and sustainable management.
