About the National Capital Commission

The National Capital Commission is the corporation responsible for planning, as well as taking part in the development, conservation and improvement of Canada’s Capital Region. The NCC fulfills its mandate through the following areas of activity: setting the long-term planning direction for federal lands in Canada’s Capital Region; guiding and controlling the use and development of federal lands in Canada’s Capital Region; managing, conserving and protecting NCC assets (including Gatineau Park, the Greenbelt, the NCC real property portfolio, and other assets such as bridges, pathways and parkways); and maintaining heritage sites in Canada’s Capital Region, such as the official residences and commemorative sites.

The NCC recognizes that Communities in Bloom is a useful forum, which provides the opportunity to regularly re-evaluate how beauty works in our communities and how it can be cultivated every year in colourful and meaningful ways.
