Canadian Capitals Cities Organization


Working Together to Improve Canada's Capital Cities

Canada’s capital cities play a unique role in Canadian society, with over 10 million people in 14 capitals. The capitals have diverse populations, climates, geographies, histories and cultures, but they share a common responsibility as the seat of government and the symbol of collective identity and citizen aspirations.

How does a capital city stay relevant and distinctive in the modern age? For more than a decade, a collaborative organization has been working quietly to help Canada’s 14 provincial, territorial and federal capital cities define and express their identities. Founded in 1995, the Canadian Capitals Cities Organization (CCCO) serves as a network for beneficial cooperation.

Highlights of Recent Developments

Each of Canada’s capital cities has a number of recent initiatives underway.

What is our Mission?

The CCCO is a network for Canada’s capital cities and capital commissions to:

Promote and support the unique and symbolic significance of Canada’s capital cities to our citizens.

Exchange experience and information, and share learning and best practices to support and improve outreach and other “citizenship” programs, activities and initiatives in the capitals.

Build links, relationships and collaboration across capital cities.

Outreach or citizenship programs are those that connect, celebrate, educate and inform citizens around our shared history and heritage, culture and identity, democratic tradition and values. They also foster collective pride and facilitate the achievement of citizen aspirations.
