The Kanata Lakes community was built around the Kanata Golf and Country Club. The vision for our community included preserving 40 percent green space. This was solidified by the signing of the 40 percent agreement in 1981. This document survives today and has been the instrumental in the shaping of our community.

Copies of the 1981 Forty Percent Agreement and the 1988 Amendment are available here for download:
