Your Code of Conduct is intended as a tool for guiding your professional interaction as you perform your duties. It therefore sets out our values, our commitment to ethics and the behaviour expected in our dealings with the public, the government, and colleagues. In fulfilling our mandate and as employees of the Government of Canada, we must give thought to accepting or rejecting certain behaviour out of our concern to act with professionalism at all times. ­ Clearly, the Code of Conduct cannot cover every delicate situation that might arise, but it can be used as a reference. Furthermore, the content of the Code must not substitute for sound personal judgment; nor is it designed to replace legislation or regulations. In the event of a discrepancy between official documents and the NCC Code of Conduct, the more stringent of the two rules will apply.

Topic: Gatineau Park
At what time are ski conditions posted on the website each morning? The first update is posted at 8:30 am. Each day, grooming operations are planned according to weather conditions. Because many unpredictable factors are at play, grooming operations cannot be planned more than 12 hours in advance. Why do the ski conditions posted on the website not always match the conditions observed on the trails? Ski conditions can change quickly, depending on snowfall, wind conditions and skier traffic. Tracks set at a depth of five centimetres can be covered in less than two hours with a substantial snowfall or strong winds. Why do the tracks set for classic skiing at the bottom of slopes not always begin at the same point on different slopes? Classic ski tracks are not set on slopes where the grade exceeds 10 percent. The assessment of the slope grade can vary depending on the operator doing the grooming. The same goes for the exact location where the tracks begin and end on the slope. The operator also adjusts the track setting according to the snow conditions. For example, if the trails are icy, the segment that is not track-set will be longer, to allow skiers to snowplow and better control their speed.

Research Purpose and Objectives The National Capital Commission (NCC) collects information from various federal organizations and departments in Canada’s Capital Region (CCR) related to building location, employment and resource logistics. This data has been collected regularly over the past 28 years with the most recent iteration representing information for organizations reporting in 2014. This historic and current federal employment data is an important input to NCC planning functions by providing a picture of the trends that are informing the federal facilities and land use planning in the Capital region. The purpose of the study was to identify the resources available, space allocation and workplace accessibility available for federal organization/departments. More specifically, the objectives include: Employment status, place of work and province for federal employees; Anticipated building space requirements; Main program function within each building; and Types of alternative workspace and telework strategies and the proportion of employees involved in these strategies.

Yours to Protect. Yours to Enjoy Welcome to Gatineau Park, the Capital Region’s conservation and outdoor recreation park! Just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa–Gatineau, enjoy a whole range of activities — including camping, swimming, hiking, biking — as well as heritage sites and nature interpretation. One of the few places in Quebec with such rich biodiversity, the Park is a sanctuary for more than 100 species of plants and animals at risk. The Park is here today for us to enjoy, because of those in the early 1900s who saw these forests as a treasure to be preserved. The National Capital Commission (NCC) is responsible for protecting this unique park, in collaboration with partners who are devoted to its conservation. Protecting and preserving ecosystems are Gatineau Park priorities. That’s why the NCC encourages people to enjoy outdoor activities that respect the environment. You can help to protect the Park by making sure that you leave no trace.

Topic: Master Plans
Executive Summary This Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in support of the 2013 Greenbelt Master Plan development has been completed concurrent to the Master Plan review process. The Plan directions have been refined as a result of the analysis completed through this SEA analysis. Analysis of developing strategic directions and policies has helped to strengthen the final Plan version through consideration to achieve positive environmental effects, reduction of potential negative environmental effects, management of cumulative and residual effects and integration of directions from more strategic level documents such as the NCC’s Environmental Strategy. Overall, the anticipated environmental effects that will result through implementation of the proposed Greenbelt Master Plan components will be significant and positive for the Greenbelt and for Canada’s Capital Region. The updated Master Plan places the Natural Environment as the primary role within the Greenbelt and the full suite of proposed plan directions substantively supports the protection and enhancement of the Natural Environment. This Master Plan, and the recent and developing strategic plans that cover Canada’s Capital Region all rely upon increased partnership efforts to better integrate the planning and delivery of land and resource initiatives within the Capital. With the common recognition of collaboration as a necessity, the Greenbelt Master Plan should contribute significantly to a healthy and sustainable Capital natural environment. The potential for negative environmental effects from implementation of the updated Greenbelt Master Plan does not arise from the proposed plan components themselves but in the way that the policies aim to accommodate human activities. The mitigation for preventing negative environmental effects is built into the full suite of Greenbelt policies. As a result, the expectation is that the Master Plan components working together will accomplish an overall positive environmental effect. This effect will be long term and should also be cumulative in its positive nature and scope when combined with the environmental effects that result from partner implementation of the other strategic plans for Canada’s Capital Region.

Topic: Greenbelt
The Greenbelt is the pride of Canadians and is a benefit to local residents and visitors with its many recreational opportunities and natural environment areas. Increasingly, those who know the Greenbelt are viewing it as part of a greater system - the Capital Ecosystem Network - that includes the Ottawa River, the Carp Hills in the West, natural areas in Gatineau, the Cumberland Forest in the East, and the Osgoode Swamp in the South, to name but a few. For this reason, the Greenbelt as an ecosystem must not only function within its 20,600 hectares, but must also be managed for how it connects and functions with other ecosystems outside its map-defined boundaries. The final phase of consultations in the Greenbelt Master Plan Review Process confirmed what has been heard since the review was initiated in 2008: that the natural environment of the Greenbelt is a local and national treasure and must forever be protected. Participants in the consultation process on Step D: Land Designations, Policies and Sector Plans overwhelmingly agreed that the Natural Environment remains the Greenbelt’s primary role, which prioritizes the Core Natural Area and Natural Link land designations as the Greenbelt’s main focus. Consensus is clear that theses natural areas are a source of major ecological benefit as well as being one of the largest recreational spaces in the Capital. Again, calls rang out from residents and environmental organizations for strengthened natural connections to ecosystems outside of the Greenbelt and continued attention to opportunities that may present themselves for increasing the Greenbelt’s natural environment footprint.

In June 2009, the National Capital Commission (NCC) launched its first comprehensive environmental strategy, known as Building a Greener Capital. This eight-year plan mapped out five key action areas, each with one priority objective and a focused set of secondary targets. This annual report provides the NCC’s Board of Directors and the public with a detailed account of the corporation’s environmental performance for the 2013–2014 fiscal year. It builds on previous reports to illustrate the progress achieved by the NCC in meeting its objectives in all of the priority action areas. The report also describes how the NCC has managed important environmental regulatory compliance risks and issues during the year.

Objectives of the plan The National Capital Commission (NCC) would like to develop an improvement plan for the federal lands located in the Capital’s core area on the north shore of the Ottawa River, including the Ruisseau de la Brasserie (Brewery Creek) sector. The objective of the plan is to develop a consistent overall planning concept for the federal lands in this area by putting forward planning proposals and possible uses for the lands, in addition to establishing design principles and guidelines. The area being studied is composed of federal lands, on the shoreline between Laurier Street and the river, from Jacques-Cartier Park North to Portageurs Park, and including NCC lands between Brewery Creek and Montcalm Street.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER A national capital bears a special responsibility to exemplify the nation’s heritage, culture and future aspirations. For over 100 years, the National Capital Commission (NCC) and its predecessors have carried forward this responsibility to foster a beautiful and dignified capital whose nature and character are in accordance with its national significance. On September 30, 2013, the mandate of the Capital Experience program of the NCC was transferred to Canadian Heritage. We are proud of the work that we have accomplished over the past 25 years in animating the Capital, and we thank the Capital Experience team for successfully promoting the Capital over these years. Moving forward, the NCC will focus on its original role as custodian, planner and steward of Canada’s Capital Region. This more focused mandate allows the NCC to shape a signature capital with green spaces and heritage spaces, and as a space for urban design. Two strategies will guide us: creating a vibrant and sustainable Capital Region that inspires Canadians, and communicating the Capital’s importance to all Canadians.

As a part of the NCC’s Outdoor Experience program, the NCC operates Sunday Bikedays, a program that provides vehicle-free access to several of the National Capital Region’s scenic parkways to cyclists, in- line skaters and pedestrians. It takes place on Sunday mornings between Victoria Day weekend and Labour Day on the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway, Colonel By Drive, the Rockcliffe Parkway, Gatineau Parkway, Champlain Parkway and Fortune Lake Parkway. It is operated by NCC staff and volunteers. Ipsos Reid was commissioned to conduct quantitative research focusing on visitors to the National Capital Region, locals residing in the area as well as users of the Alcatel-Lucent Sunday Bikedays program. These three groups were targets among three different surveys in order to capture their awareness, satisfaction and use of the Sunday Bikedays program. The research was conducted between August 2 nd 2013 and September 8 th , 2013 and included an intercept survey of visitors to the NCR, an online survey among users of the program intercepted during participation and a telephone survey of local residents.

The site is owned by Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC). This Federal Land Use Approval will act as a first step toward the issuance of a comprehensive Federal Land Use and Design Approval. It is based upon a limited review of the NCC land use planning framework, in which Confederation Boulevard is intended as the focus for future commemorations. An interdepartmental committee, to be established to oversee the planning, approval and implementation of the commemoration, will provide a venue to discuss all relevant considerations.

Topic: Greenbelt, Master Plans
Canada’s Capital is rich today because of bold and courageous decisions made by those who came before. Natural treasures such as our publicly owned shorelines, Gatineau Park and the Greenbelt are part of the unique identity of Canada’s Capital and are undeniable pillars of the Capital's cultural and natural heritage.   The Greenbelt, introduced over 60 years ago to shape the character and beauty of the National Capital, is now part of the region’s vast network of natural spaces. It is a place of sensitive natural areas, healthy local food, agriculture, research, forests, water and play, symbolic of the vast and diverse landscapes of Canada. Covering almost five percent of Canada’s Capital Region, the Greenbelt is significant because of its location, size and role in providing a place for residents and visitors to experience nature and a breath of fresh air. However, the Greenbelt faces many challenges. It is expected to respond to diverse and at times conflicting needs, and attracts considerable scrutiny due to the strict planning controls which govern land use and the urban pressures confronting it.   The previous and first Master Plan (1996), established land use strategies to provide recreation and attractive landscapes, to improve damaged and abandoned lands, to secure natural spaces and to support agriculture and forestry. This Plan takes into account the extent to which the Greenbelt is presently meeting these objectives and looks ahead to where the Greenbelt could be in 2067. The Plan renews and expands upon the original vision for the Greenbelt so that future generations of Canadians can continue to enjoy a superior quality of life in Canada’s Capital.   Canada’s Capital Greenbelt has strongly influenced - and continues to shape - the overall character of the Capital Region. The Greenbelt encircles much of the oldest urban City of Ottawa communities1. Its size of 20,600 hectares (206 square kilometres) is equal to the urbanized area of Ottawa that it surrounds. In 2011, approximately half a million people lived within the inner urban area surrounded by the Greenbelt2, representing only a slightly larger population than that of 1996. Another approximately half million people live within the City of Ottawa outside of the Greenbelt. Ranging in width from two to ten kilometres, the Greenbelt lies within eight kilometres of Parliament Hill and the heart of the Capital.

Topic: Gatineau Park
Gatineau Park is one of the jewels of Canada's Capital Region. It was inspired by the vision of national capital planners and support from the many stakeholders who, early in the 20th century, suggested that a space to discover and preserve a piece of Canada’s natural and historical heritage be created in Canada’s Capital region. A living symbol of the importance of protecting the environment for Canadians, the Park allows visitors to enjoy memorable nature-based experiences in their capital. For more than a century, the Park has continued to evolve, thanks in part to the efforts of successive generations of outdoor enthusiasts who have helped it to become the amazing site it is today. Thus, Gatineau Park expresses, in a unique manner, an intangible recreational heritage that forms an integral part of the residents’ of Canada's Capital Region (CCR) cultural makeup. The Park, its environment and its role in outdoor recreation are key contributors to the quality of living of the residents of Canada’s Capital region. However, the Park’s popularity and urbanization of the surrounding area exert considerable pressure on the Park environment, which is a prime example of the Canadian Shield landscape. If it is clear that we must now subordinate the entire recreational practice to conservation issues that will allow the Park to continue to be what it is for future generations, it is also clear that all Canadians must continue to develop a close contact with nature and with the heritage the Park has to offer. This Outdoor Activities Plan seeks to identify the balance between the efforts required in terms of conservation and those to be done to preserve the recreational legacy that is an integral part of the quality of life of Canadians and allows them to discover the Park.

This report highlights the thoughtful and engaging feedback received during the extensive consultation process undertaken in the spring and summer of 2011 for Step C: Land Use Concept Plan, Guiding Principles and Strategic Objectives as part of the Greenbelt Master Plan Review. This phase sought input on revised strategic statements along with three proposed Land Use Concept Options, the results of which will inform the development and approval of a preferred Land Use Concept. From out of this land use plan, seven sector plans will be developed that specify exactly how the different land designations are to be managed. Through rounds of public open houses and workshops, as well as targeted stakeholder meetings, NCC Staff and the Review Study Team have been able to synthesize the feedback received and highlight the main overall trends emerging.

Topic: The Plan for Canada's Capital
  Horizon 2067 updates the Plan for Canada’s Capital, which was published in 1999. This plan establishes federal government policy for planning and the physical development of the Capital over the next 50 years. In the fall of 2011, the National Capital Commission (NCC) invited Canadians from all regions of the country to share with us their ideas on creating a one‐of‐a‐kind capital.   The second phase of this engagement, namely a series of regional conversations, included workshops and online consultations. The purpose of this phase was to share, in broad terms, some of the feedback that the NCC had received during the fall and to solicit ideas and comments from people living in Canada’s Capital Region regarding the vision and strategies put forth in the Horizon 2067 plan.

Topic: The Plan for Canada's Capital
Planning for the Future of Our Capital At the dawn of the 21st century, Canada’s Capital needs a visionary and concrete action plan to meet the challenges ahead and to continue building a capital that vividly expresses the values and hopes of Canadians. With this mission in mind, the National Capital Commission (NCC) embarked on a unique and ambitious public consultation exercise in the fall of 2011. The consultation aimed to reach as many Canadians as possible, and gather their thoughts, ideas and aspirations for the future of Canada’s Capital. As part of the review of the Plan for Canada’s Capital, the NCC’s lead planning document, the National Engagement Strategy was developed to involve and engage the Canadian public from one end of the country to the other. The breadth and depth of the response exceeded expectations, and confirmed that Canadians care about their capital and want to have a say in its future. At the heart of this journey was a desire to connect directly with Canadians on a meaningful level and bring forward, through the plan, a clear reflection of their dreams for the future of their capital.

  Financial Results  The National Capital Commission (NCC) recorded an increase of $3.5 million (16 percent) in revenues during  the first nine months of 2011–2012, compared with the same period last year. This increase stems mainly from  an amendment to the payment schedule for the contribution of Canadian Heritage to Canada Day celebrations  ($1.2 million), in order to better align cash inflows with expenditures related to the event, as well as from higher  recoveries related to planning studies ($0.7 million). A settlement ($0.5 million), an increase in rental operations  revenues ($0.5 million) and in interest revenues resulting from higher interest rates ($0.4 million) also  contributed to the positive variance.

This increase stems mainly from an amendment to the payment schedule for the contribution of the Department of Canadian Heritage to Canada Day celebrations, in order to better align cash inflows with expenditures related to the event ($0.7 million). Higher interest revenues resulting from enhanced treasury management practices also contributed to the positive variance ($0.3 million).

Since the approval of the Gatineau Park Master Plan (2005), the NCC has increased its focus on the conservation of Park ecosystems. The Eardley Escarpment is the most important valued natural ecosystem in the Park and is considered a Priority I conservation zone (DDM 2007). One objective of the Gatineau Park Ecosystem Conservation Plan (DDM 2010) is to determine a policy regarding rock climbing activities in Gatineau Park based on Master Plan guidelines. The Conservation Plan was approved in 2010 following numerous workshops with the various stakeholders. The Plan recommends keeping two or three rock faces open for climbing. The purpose of this recommendation is to minimize the impact of this sport to protect the exceptional natural environment of the Escarpment, Gatineau Park’s richest and most fragile ecosystem, and its species at risk.

This report is the summary of public consultation input for the second step, Step B – Visioning, of the Greenbelt Master Plan review, a process projected to result in an updated master plan at the end of 2011. The following captures and synthesizes the rich input obtained over a six month period on the future of the Greenbelt in 2060, provided by over 600 people with an interest in the National Capital Greenbelt. Participants included a mix of public members (residents, representatives of community and user group/interest associations, businesses and politicians), federal stakeholders, agencies, municipal staff, Greenbelt facility managers, Greenbelt experts and staff and management from the National Capital Commission. Between August 2009 and January 2010, the Greenbelt Master Plan (GMP) review team held ten consultation events to gather informed feedback for refinement of the Greenbelt’s current vision. Although the majority of participants are knowledgeable about the Greenbelt, each consultation method featured presentation of the current state of the Greenbelt from the existing conditions assessment, Step A of the review. Participants then imagined what the current features and landscape of the current Greenbelt would look like in 50 years. The range of thoughtful insights and suggestions are summarized in this report.

The Greenbelt performs a broad range of roles and uses which touch on the interests of many different members of our community and Nation such as natural environment, agriculture, environmental sustainability, urban planning and development, recreation, and location of federal institutions and commercial facilities. The Greenbelt represents a place to live, work and play as experienced by residents, employees, and recreational enthusiasts within and beyond the Greenbelt. It plays a pivotal role in shaping and contributing to the character of the National Capital. Decisions made about the future of the Greenbelt, through the revised Master Plan, directly affect livelihoods and the day-to day living of residents of Ottawa and beyond. The consultation program supporting the Greenbelt Master Plan Review is designed to provide opportunities to ensure that these views and those of the local and national communities are well represented in establishing the current state of the Greenbelt’s assets and health and in defining and implementing a future for the Greenbelt. This report documents the methodology, results and analysis of consultation undertaken in support of completion of Step A - Existing Conditions, Issues and Opportunities for the Greenbelt Master Plan Review. The Report spans all consultation events beginning with the Project launch in September 2008 through to completion of the Existing Conditions, Issues and Opportunities Report for the Greenbelt in December 2009, including meetings with stakeholders, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this consultation will inform subsequent steps of the Review process, the next being the creation of a vision for the Greenbelt through an expert stakeholder and public consultation process that occurred through the fall of 2009 and winter of 2010.
