Ottawa Riverkeeper

As a grassroots charity, Ottawa Riverkeeper (ORK) brings together volunteers, communities, businesses and all levels of government to find solutions to the problems that threaten the health of our river.

ORK received a generous fund from the Ontario government for us to provide them with an extensive series of cloud-based training.
