CCUNESCO and the Canada Council
A common goal
In 1957, the Government of Canada assigned oversight of CCUNESCO to the Canada Council for the Arts. Since then, the Canada Council and the Canadian Commission for UNESCO have shared a history and a common goal to promote the sustainable development of society.
It is not uncommon for the Canada Council, CCUNESCO and UNESCO to have complementary activities and initiatives. Their shared paths - of renewed importance and relevance - strengthen their contributions to a future of peace, equity and sustainable development.
