Citizens for Safe Cycling is proud to collaborate with the following like-minded organizations in Ottawa:
Cycle Salvation is a social enterprise operating under the umbrella of Causeway Work Centre. The business strives to achieve a triple bottom line (profit, people, planet) by providing training and employment in the field of bike mechanics to people who are economically disadvantaged, while at the same time diverting bikes destined for scrap and landfill sites. View their refurbished bikes for sale at their store at 473 Bronson (near Gladstone).
Ecology Ottawa is a not-for-profit, grassroots, volunteer-driven organization that works to make Ottawa the green capital of Canada. They celebrate environmentally responsible decisions and actions; bring to light the things that hurt our environment; and advocate for improvement. They also work with inidividuals and communities across the city to educate them about environmental issues and what to do about them.
