Central connections with a National perspective
Since 2007, the Canadian Craft Federation’s (CCF/FCMA) head office has been in Fredericton, New Brunswick. However, the CCF/FCMA is making another historic move back to Ottawa, Ontario. The new location is an exciting opportunity for the CCF/FCMA to nourish central connections with a national perspective of craft in Canada.
Before welcoming our new Executive Director, the CCF/FCMA headquarters shared an office with the New Brunswick Crafts Council in collaboration with The New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. However, since the pandemic and building renovations, the CCF/FCMA has become a home office with a small team working remotely across the country, from Woodstock to Whitehorse.
The CCF/FCMA office is moving back to Ottawa and will be in the Arts Court building on the traditional unceded territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin. Arts Court is home to many outstanding arts organizations, such as CARFAC and the SAW Gallery. While the CCF/FCMA staff are still working remotely, the office is regional to the current Executive Director and open by appointment only.
The CCF/FCMA is enthusiastic about the change. This move brings the CCF/FCMA closer to National discussions, strengthening its position as a conduit and information link between the craft community and the federal government.
Remember to update your address books, the CCF/FCMA has changed the mailing address to:
