Communities need culture work.
Culture workers need CCNC.
The Creative City Network of Canada (CCNC) is a network of dedicated municipal culture leaders whose work ignites communities and contributes to a vibrant, creative Canada.
CCNC offers membership in three areas of culture work:
Municipalities from across Canada’s provinces and territories are the primary members of CCNC. Local culture, recreation, and economic development departments are funders, programmers, and promoters of arts and culture within Canada’s communities. Your membership with CCNC provides you and your team with all the benefits we have to offer including direct access to colleagues, full access to local culture resources, opportunities to work on committees, and expand your team’s access to a full array of ideas, solutions, and best practices for municipalities.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Creative City Network of Canada is making efforts to best address the needs and concerns of our membership. We will be updating this site with a list of resources and information that have been released over the course of the pandemic.
“CCNC has been foundational for me in 15 years of municipal cultural management. There is always someone in the network who is ahead of what we’re doing so I can pick their brain and borrow their documents…It’s the perfect network of cross-country colleagues!”
— Rebecca Cann, Cultural Services Supervisor, City of St. Catharines
