Canadian Conference of the Arts to Cease Operations

The Canadian Conference of the Arts (CCA), the largest national alliance of the arts, culture and heritage sector across Canada, has announced that it will begin winding down its operations immediately. 

In a news release posted on its website, the CCA explained that, "Despite considerable efforts and early positive results, the Board of Governors of the CCA has come to the conclusion that it is impossible to achieve the objectives of the new business model in less than two years. The Board considers that it would be irresponsible to risk the money generously offered to the CCA so far: it has therefore decided to cease operations immediately and to put the organization in a state of suspension, in the hope that in the not too distant future others will pick up the torch and re-launch this unique instrument for the good of the Canadian cultural sector."

The news release also states, "The CCA will be leaving behind a legacy of research, archives and projects. A message to members on the closure, from both Alain Pineau and Kath­leen Sharpe, is available on the CCA’s website at www.ccarts.ca."
