The Canadian Ecology Centre/Centre Écologique du Canada is home of the Mattawa River Writers Festival/Festival des Écrivains.

We are at the confluence of two historic rivers, in the rocky landscape of Ontario's Near North within the Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park.

What better place to be inspired than here?

Our cabins within the forest provide an ideal writer's retreat.

The Festival is on a hiatus and we look forward to seeing again in the future.
