Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities

The Centre for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities (CPCC) grew out of a multi-year project teaching cultural policy at SFU in partnership with local arts and community groups. From 2005–2008, SFU, in partnership with the Creative City Network of Canada, conducted a cross-Canada review of the state of Canadian built cultural infrastructure, assembling a Center for Expertise on Culture and Communities with a separate advisory board of notable cultural scholars. In 2008, SFU’s Senate approved the permanent Centre, renaming it the Center for Policy Studies on Culture and Communities.
