CCCO activates 2021-2025 Strategic Plan

February 24, 2021

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, has launched a 2021-2025 Strategic Plan that will interactively engage capital city residents on current critical issues.

Upcoming open sessions include dialogues on unique capital city roles in rebuilding visitor economies after COVID, Reconciliation, placemaking, and Remembrance. The strategic plan also establishes priorities for networking, sustainability, education and celebration, shared history, heritage, culture, identity, democratic systems, traditions and values.

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.

“A strategic plan is a tool for action – a blueprint illustrating how we can take a planning document and turn it into inclusive, accessible initiatives that educate the public and membership on the symbolic and substantive role of Capitals, and provide experiential value for members,” noted President Marianne Alto.

CCCO’s 2021 Executive Committee, elected at its most recent virtual annual general meeting, includes:

  • President: Marianne Alto, Councillor, City of Victoria, BC
  • Vice-President: Daniel Feeny, Gatineau, QC
  • Treasurer: Monique Goffinet-Millet, Chief Executive Officer, Saskatchewan Provincial Capital Commission, Regina, SK
  • Secretary: Laurel Lea, Tourism Officer, City of Charlottetown, PE
  • Past-President: Sandy Hickman, Councillor, City of St. John’s, NL
