Canadian Catholic Aboriginal Council

The mission of the Canadian Catholic Aboriginal Council (CCAC) is to examine and address current issues regarding Aboriginal Peoples within the Catholic Church in Canada.

The CCAC seeks to promote Aboriginal Peoples’ culture and traditional celebrations within the context of the Catholic faith.
The Council studies and analyzes issues related to Catholic Aboriginal spirituality and education.

It encourages Aboriginal leadership in the Christian community, and supports and promotes reconciliation in the context of the Catholic reality.

The CCAC serves as an important link between Aboriginal Catholics and non-Aboriginal Catholics.

It establishes partnerships that advance and advocate for meaningful relationships between Aboriginal Peoples and the Catholic Church at large. The CCAC also advises the Bishops of Canada on issues related to Aboriginal Peoples.
