Campaign Success

Now in our 24th year, this year’s GLAD Cleaning the Capital campaign seeks to keep our city clean and green for 2017. Since the program’s inception, over one million volunteers have participated in over 17,000 cleanup projects throughout the city. As a result, more than an estimated 930,000 kilograms of waste has been removed from our public spaces.

Kanata South has won this award 5 times!  Keep up the fantastic work and please let me know of any registered clean dates and locations as I do my best to pop by to say thank you to volunteers.


2017 Project

As a 2017 project I am pleased to invite you to join me in documenting the people, places and activities that make Kanata South a great place to live, work and play.

Please send me your ideas of who you think should be highlighted in our book and why.

We will gather all your responses and compile them into a memory book available to everyone and placed in the Library for future generations to have a snapshot of what made Kanata South special in 2017.

Thank you to all who have sent in their stories and photos.  If you haven’t sent yours in yet, please email them to me at allan.hubley@ottawa.ca.

More details regarding this project can be found on my website under the Community tab.
