The CNCAC supports the idea that new immigrant youth and their peers have great creative energy. Given the chance, and a sense of ownership, they can and will be the engines of growth in Canada’s cultural and arts industries, whether it be in television, film, advertising, journalism, theatre, writing, or the visual arts. We especially want to increase opportunities for marginalized immigrant and refugee youth so that they can experience and contribute to their cultural background and to Canada.
