As the largest landowner in Canada’s Capital Region, the NCC cares for and protects vital public places that are unique to our nation’s symbolic, natural and cultural heritage.
As steward of these holdings, the NCC manages Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt, the Rideau Canal Skateway, urban lands and parks, pathways, scenic parkways, real property and heritage buildings, agricultural and research facilities, and commemorative monuments. It is also the custodian of the Capital’s six official residences.
The NCC continuously improves its assets so they remain a legacy for future generations.
In 2020, the NCC secured $52.4 million in funding to improve resiliency and ensure the safety of some of its most iconic assets.
In 2018, the Government of Canada announced $55 million in funding to support critical repair and maintenance of NCC's major infrastructure assets.
