Many communities throughout the country are undertaking Comprehensive Community Planning (CCP) in an effort to improve their economic base while asserting their independence and ownership of community resources. Comprehensive Community Planning is a holistic process that enables a
community to build a roadmap to sustainability, self-sufficiency and improved governance capacity. It is a new approach to planning, where the process is steered by the community rather than a small group or committee. Planning is an important tool on the road to self-governance and building capacity in First Nations communities. Each community requires a unique approach to planning that can be adapted to their culture and traditions – it can help individual First Nations make a positive difference in addressing specific issues in their community.
