About Atlantic Council of Canada / NATO Association of Canada:

The Atlantic Council of Canada (ACC) promotes knowledge and understanding of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Canada. It was founded in 1966 as a non-governmental organization. ACC belongs to the Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA). Through this membership, ACC has built connections to its sister organizations in NATO member countries and other organizations involved in NATO's programmes. In addition, ACC helped develop the Youth Atlantic Treaty Association (YATA). YATA engages youth in important discussions and makes them aware of Canada's place in the world.

ACC runs numerous fundraising, public outreach and educational events. ACC's intern program provides substantial support to this organization. Interns plan conferences, write in the newsletter, and speak at secondary schools. Their research and articles are shared on the website. ACC also organizes tours to NATO centres in North America and Europe.

ACC acts as the secretariat for two business councils (Canadian-Turkish Business Council and Canada-Albania Business Council). This aligns with ACC's goal of encouraging international economic cooperation.
