We’re looking for new office buddies — could you be one?

Together with the Ottawa Renewable Energy Cooperative, we are looking for either several individual, or a small group, of new office buddies to join us at the Sustainable Capacity Centre in the Hintonburg area of Ottawa. Somewhere in the range of 5-10 new faces, who will work out of a newly renovated front room.

Monthly rent starts at $250 for an individual, or $1000 for a group. If you like working in a vibrant, creative space, surrounded by exciting sustainability groups and ventures, this may be the place for you. Includes access to kitchenette, small meeting room, washrooms (one with a shower), a trendy donut shop downstairs, and awesome office buddies.

You don’t need to be a non-profit either – businesses that care about sustainability are more than welcome!

National Capital Region Green Pages

The National Capital Green Pages is now accepting submissions for our print directory for 2012.

The National Capital Green Pages is a regional print and online directory containing listings of local products, services, businesses and organizations of Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. This directory is designed to celebrate and support the many sustainable groups and businesses in the National Capital Region and to connect the public with eco-friendly options in their community.

The Green Pages were initially a print directory published by Seventh Generation Community Projects and available at community fairs and events. It has evolved over the years as a collaborative project that includes a print and online edition put together by Tucker House Renewal Centre, the Peace and Environment Resource Centre, and hosted online by Sustainable Eastern Ontario.
