Our Vision

CNAL/RCAA envisions a world in which the arts and creativity are recognized as integral to the learning process, both at school and throughout life. By connecting Canada's diverse arts and learning communities, we will shift mindsets about arts education and increase access to meaningful arts experiences for all Canadians, laying the foundation for social, economic and cultural transformation.

Our mission is to unite local, regional and national arts and learning communities in a network for exchange, research and collaboration, cultivating a more creative, innovative and prosperous Canada.
