About Confederation Centre of The Arts:

Founded in 1964 as Canada’s National Memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, who gathered at Province House in 1864 to discuss the creation of Canada, Fathers of Confederation Buildings Trust now operates as Confederation Centre of The Arts (CCOA). CCOA aims to engage and empower the imagination of youth; to honour the vision of the Founders of Canada; to strengthen Canada’s national identity; and to increase the cultural wealth of all Canadians. It houses several theatres, an art gallery, and a gift shop and showcases Canadian visual and performing arts.

In F2012, CCOA welcomed more than 250,000 visitors, including in-person and online visitors. More than 700 students participated in CCOA’s Arts Discovery Days program (offered in both English and French) where students spend a day exploring different ways of learning about their Social Studies curriculum. Through its Choral Program CCOA sent 50 people on a Youth Chorus Tour to Rome and Naples. CCOA’s art gallery welcomed a total of 38,719 visitors and organized 12 exhibitions. It conducted several outreach activities such as Art in the Open and touring exhibitions. Sobeys Live @ the Centre, a children’s entertainment program, celebrated its 10-year anniversary and conducted 19 performances.
