The Rideau Roundtable is an incorporated, not-for-profit, association of individuals, community organizations and government agencies that focuses on the environment, the history and the cultural significance of the Rideau River, the Rideau Canal Waterway, the Cataraqui River and their respective watersheds. The focus of our programs and activities include heritage tourism, public awareness, cultural and natural landscape conservation, and stewardship, new options for Waterway governance, outdoor education, recreation and adventure.

Our main on-going project is the Rideau Experience program:

The Rideau Experience program (Or REX) uses interpreted voyageur canoe outings to explore the environmental, historical and cultural treasures of the Rideau. These tours are aimed at schools, families, and community and business groups and are a great way to see this unique National and UNESCO heritage site from a different perspective.

Our Mission

The mission of the Rideau Roundtable is to promote and encourage the wise management of the Rideau waterway and corridor to ensure that its unique natural, historic and recreational values are sustained and enjoyed as a legacy for future generations. The focus of our programs and activities include heritage tourism, public awareness, cultural and natural landscape conservation, and stewardship, new options for Waterway governance, outdoor education, recreation and adventure.
