Resource Summary

The CCP movement was driven by First Nations in BC, begining around 2004 (though it draws on centuries of community planning expertise)

  • Over half of the First Nations in British Columbia have undertaken a CCP process, more than 100 in total
  • Every autumn more than 100 First Nations community planners gather for a three-day CCP Workshop
  • Only a handful of First Nations outside of BC have done CCPs but that number is expected to grow as the federal government is starting to support Comprehensive Community Planning in other regions including the Atlantic region, Ontario and Saskatchewan

Indigenous Services Canada – Comprehensive Community Planning Handbook

Comprehensive Community Planning Handbook

Resource Summary

SKFN-ISC-CCP HANDBOOK

Read in English or French

The fourth edition of the Comprehensive Community Planning (CCP) Handbook comes after 10 years of passionate and inspiring work within the CCP community in British Columbia (BC). Since the handbook was first published in 2006, many First Nations in BC have begun their own CCP journey. A growing number of completed plans are being implemented with great success and significant benefit to the health and wellness of their communities.

With more and more communities moving into the implementation phase of CCP, the need to incorporate lessons learned and strengthen the implementation, and monitoring and evaluation sections of the handbook became obvious.
