The CCCO is a uniquely positioned organization that works to create celebration, education, connection and pride across Canada through the diverse story of each Capital City.
This national level network of capital cities will serve Canada’s residents through relationships and initiatives highlighting the symbolic and substantive role of the Capitals.
The CCCO is a network for Canada’s capital cities and capital commissions, with the following mission:
- to support and focus on messaging the unique and symbolic significance of Canada’s capital cities and promote this to our residents.
- to network Canada through exchange experience and information, and share learning and best practices and to build links, relationships and collaboration across capital cities.
Outreach or citizenship programs are those that connect, celebrate, educate and inform residents around our shared history and heritage, culture and identity, democratic tradition and values.
They also foster collective pride and facilitate the achievement of people’s aspirations as residents.
■ The CCCO will be a relevant and effective forum for members to collaborate and strengthen outreach initiatives, across the country.
■ Our residents will have a stronger connection to, and pride in our shared:
- history and heritage
- culture and identity
- democratic systems, tradition and values.
The CCCO includes participants from the federal, provincial, territorial and municipal sectors and the private sector. These participants are representatives from each capital who want to work together to promote the historic, cultural, economic and symbolic heritage of the capitals of Canada.
Our Strategic Plan
(2022 - 2026)
The Canadian Capital Cities Organization (CCCO), including representatives of capital cities from coast to coast to coast, national and provincial capital commissions, and Legislative Assemblies, launched in 2020 a 2021-2025 Strategic Plan to interactively engage capital city residents on current critical issues.
CCCO’s strategic plan is a roadmap for action highlighting how CCCO will achieve key objectives and goals, promoting the unique and symbolic significance of Canada’s capital cities, and providing an interactive network among Canadian capitals sharing learning and best practices, building links, relationships and collaboration.
The plan was updated to 2022-2026 in March 2022 and revised the 2022 Annual General Meeting.
