CCCO updates Strategic Plan

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.
