Happening now in the Capital

Every day, we work to build an inspiring capital that is a source of pride for all Canadians.

The National Capital Region represents the heart of our great nation. It is the centre of our democracy, and a symbol of the country's collective history, heritage, culture and natural features.

Building on more than a century of experience, the NCC provides unique value in the Capital Region by fulfilling three specific roles: long-term planner of federal lands; principal steward of nationally significant public places; creative partner committed to excellence in development and conservation.
