The Coastal Communities Network is a volunteer association of organizations whose mission is to provide a forum to encourage dialogue, share information, and create strategies and actions that promote the survival and development of Nova Scotia’s coastal and rural communities.
CCN helps to break rural isolation by networking people, information and activities. Networking also provides moral support for overworked volunteers.
CCN recognizes that effective leadership is critical for ensuring vital, healthy sustainable rural communities. Thus CCN provides skills development opportunities in areas identified by rural citizens.
CCN strives to conduct research on issues that are identified by our membership, as being critical to rural development. Our research is community based, in that it is in response to a community need and is conducted with community members and the results are given to communities for their use.
