Help spread the news of CAI

Get involved now.  Let us know what you are doing, and how you are helping raise awareness and supporting CAI’s activities inOttawa.  Tell your network of friends and e-mail databases of CAI’s website and efforts. Encourage other families to become informed and get involved. 

Please consider sending an e-mail, or posting to your Facebook page or your blog with a direct link to us. Help people find us – help people get involved.

Utilize your Facebook page, blog, Twitter account, and LinkedIn profile to share news about Motion M-230 and the 5-point policy request. Join our efforts and encourage others to do so too.
