The Richmond Village Association (RVA) is a non-profit organization established in 1997 as a way of representing the interests of Richmond residents and attempts to fulfill two broad roles within the community:

Advocacy – Amalgamated within the City of Ottawa, one important task of the RVA is to be proactive on issues concerning Richmond residents, to form opinions, reach a consensus and present a viewpoint to various levels of government where the interests of Richmond residents may be affected.  This is our “advocacy” role.

Together, we strive to make your community a better place to work and live!  In this regard,  the RVA is involved in numerous community endeavors, promoting Village pride and identity. The appeal of Richmond is evident to all who live here and to those just passing through. Richmond is a rural community with a rich history whose residents take pride in what their town has to offer, and it is important that a town reflect that pride.
