Welcome to the Creative City Network of Canada

Municipalities are playing a growing role in the development of arts, culture and heritage in Canada.  As a national non-profit organization that operates as a knowledge sharing, research, public education, and professional development resource in the field of local cultural policy, planning and practice, the Creative City Network of Canada (CCNC) is a network of experts working in this field in communities across Canada.


Through its work the Creative City Network of Canada helps build the capacity of local cultural planning professionals – and by extension local governments – to nurture and support cultural development in their communities.  By doing so, the Creative City Network of Canada aims to improve the operating climate and conditions for artists, arts, heritage and cultural organizations across the country, and the quality of life in Canadian communities of all sizes.
