CCUNESCO is a Network of Networks

The Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO) serves as a bridge between Canadians and the vital work of UNESCO—the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. By promoting UNESCO values, priorities and programs in Canada and by bringing the voices of Canadian experts to the international stage, the Commission contributes to a peaceful, equitable and sustainable future that leaves no one behind. 

The Commission is a network of networks that helps Canadians share knowledge, locally and globally, in order to build peace in the minds of men and women. To do so, the Commission facilitates cooperation in the fields of education, sciences, culture, communication and information to address some of the most complex challenges facing humanity. Our activities are guided by the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other UNESCO priorities. The Commission operates under the authority of the Canada Council for the Arts.
