The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is the lead intermunicipal agency working to address water-related environmental issues and concerns within the Rideau Valley watershed. Thanks to our many partners, the scope of our environmental protection work includes planning, source water protection, tackling flooding and erosion problems and researching water movement and use in the valley. We help people maintain healthy shorelines, provide advice on development-related issues and report to municipalities, agencies and the public about watershed conditions and trends. We also provide public access to natural waterfront areas, deliver community-based stewardship programs, reduce water pollution and protect fish and wildlife habitat.
Our offices are located in a suburban area just south of Ottawa where public transportation is limited. Candidates should ensure they have reliable transportation prior to applying.
