The Deep River Science Academy (DRSA) was a private non-profit organization located in Deep River, Ontario. It was devoted to education and advancement of science in Canada. Thousands of students (both high school and university) and scientists have participated in a variety of joint science-research projects organized by the DRSA since 1987. The Deep River Science Academy cooperated with Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, Chalk River Laboratories, and other knowledge economy organizations in the Upper Ottawa Valley.

In 2004, the DRSA received the Michael Smith Award for Science Promotion.

On December 16, 2016, it was announced that the Deep River Science Academy was shut down.[1] Exact reasons cannot be confirmed, but lack of funding may be the cause based on one of their website's pages.[2]
