The new website will allow membership to be processed fully without leaving the site, post jobs and public art calls autonomously, search hundreds of resources with ease, register for CCNC events, and more. Until we launch, we will be posting updates on 2021 membership here.


CCNC Official COVID-19 Response

During the unprecedented pandemic caused by COVID-19, the Creative City Network of Canada has made efforts to best address the needs and concerns of our membership. We aim to:

Support municipal culture workers through heightened and digitalized connection to CCNC members and facilitate the sharing of ideas regarding the cultural sector's emergency planning and recovery.

Listen to, document, and share the challenges faced by municipalities across Canada as they attempt to create a foundation for survival for arts and culture at a local level, thereby building a stronger foundation for a thriving cultural landscape.

Align strategically with notable national, provincial, and local bodies to further to the understanding of culture as a pillar of sustainability, an economic driver, and significant contributor to quality of life at the local level.

Create forward-looking materials based on membership feedback regarding best practices in the cultural sector's emergency response and recovery using information from National Calls and research gathered from reputable sources. These resources will be shared with the membership and, in some cases, the broader culture community, strengthening the sector’s resiliency nation-wide.
