For the second year in a row, the City of Ottawa has been recognized among Canada’s Greenest Employers.

The award — based on an evaluation of its workplace environmental programs, according to a special feature published in Friday’s Globe and Mail — highlights the City’s commitment to environmentally-friendly programs and initiatives. These include the city’s long-range transportation plans, including the Ottawa Pedestrian Plan, which has a stated goal of creating a “world-class” pedestrian city; and the city recently updated its Ottawa Cycling Plan to include the addition of segregated bike lanes downtown.
