Our Family

Kichesippi was found in 2010 by Kelly, Paul and Alexander Meek.  Our company has been 100%  family owned and operated since the beginning.  

Our Name

The word Kichesippi means "The Great River".  Prior to 1855, when the City of Ottawa was founded, the Ottawa River was known as the Kichesippi.  That river has been an integral part of the history of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario for many years.
