The Plan for Canada's Capital
Share your vision for the Capital for the next 50 years
As Canadians get ready for Canadaâ€™s 150th anniversary celebrations, the National Capital Commission (NCC) is proud to present the Plan for Canadaâ€™s Capital, 2017â€“2067, the signature planning framework that will shape the vision for the nationâ€™s capital until Canadaâ€™s bicentennial in 2067.
In December 2015, we launched an online public consultation to identify 17 major milestone projects that will transform the Capital over the next 50 years. We heard that you cherish its waterways and natural spaces, as well as its national symbols and museums. We received over 1,200 big ideas.
Now we are proud to share a draft of the plan for your feedback, between July 7 and August 7, 2016.
This plan builds on previous plans and Capital-building projects which have made a lasting contribution and strongly influenced the unique character of Canadaâ€™s Capital Region, including its striking natural beauty and dramatic built heritage.
What is the Plan for Canadaâ€™s Capital?
The Plan for Canadaâ€™s Capital, 2017â€“2067 lays out the broad vision for the future of the Capital. In particular, the plan
- outlines the vision for the use of federal lands, buildings, parks, transportation facilities and symbolic spaces in the Capital;
- ensures that the Capital continues to be nationally significant and supportive of federal institutions;
- identifies three themes and the strategic principles in the Capital that will reflect our growth as a nation, build a lasting legacy for future generations, and serve as a platform for Canadaâ€™s influence in the world;
- outlines the role of government and its partners in implementing the plan; and
- includes 17 milestone projects that will guide the next 50 years of Capital building.
