Team Trees is a fundraising initiative by the “Fridays for the Future” environment group to do something positive about climate change and help plant some trees in Australia to help recover from the recent bushfires there.

On February 4th students are encouraged to wear green and gold (Australia’s national colours) and bring a donation to help plant trees.

For every dollar donated a tree will be planted.


Celebrate Canadian winter fun during the annual Winterlude festival in Ottawa-Gatineau, January 31st to February 17th!

During this free annual event, you can marvel at beautiful ice sculptures, skate on the world-famous Rideau Canal Skateway, and play till you drop in Snowflake Kingdom. But many more indoor and outdoor activities await, all highlighting Canada’s cultural, artistic and culinary diversity!

Most festival activities are free and take place in the urban Ottawa-Gatineau region during the first three weekends of February.
