What We Manage

The NCC is responsible for developing, preserving and improving Canada’s Capital Region for Canadians. As the steward of a large and diverse land and asset base, we are committed to preserving, sustaining and managing these assets to enrich the experience of Canadians. The NCC manages 236 kilometres of recreational paths and 90 kilometres of parkways. We also play a role in protecting cultural resources, including the six official residences, and managing them as part of the Canadian legacy. To build a Capital that is a source of Canadian pride, we undertake many development and rehabilitation projects.

We also manage natural resources in the Region. Find out more about our Environmental Strategy and about conservation in the Greenbelt and Gatineau Park.
