Comprehensive Community Planning

Comprehensive Community Planning (CCP) is a holistic process that allows a community to identify a roadmap to sustainability, self-reliance and improved governance. The plan is based on the members’ vision for their present and future. It is rooted in the community’s identity and aims to guide its development, by respecting its culture and traditions.

Throughout Canada, over a hundred communities have already used CCP to guide their development. In Quebec, as part of a 3-year Comprehensive Community Planning pilot project which began in 2016, the FNQLSDI has provided and continues to provide support to four First Nations in their CCP process.

Each year, the number of CCP initiatives in the region is increasing and the circle of CCP coordinators supported by the FNQLSDI is growing.

Services provided by the FNQLSDI

While the FNQLSDI provides technical support and training to local coordinators, it also facilitates networking and mentoring by organizing meetings with coordinators and supporting First Nation participation in national and regional CCP workshops. The FNQLSDI also contributes to the development and promotion of CCP at the national level, by taking part in the Canadian CCP network’s activities.
