Comprehensive Community Planning (CCP) is a process that engages community members in planning and implementing the long term vision for their community. It includes the development of objectives, goals and/or a plan of action to work towards fulfilling the vision. Many First Nations communities across British Columbia are already engaged in planning and are experiencing great success. CCP is a community-based, community-driven planning process that includes meaningful membership involvement throughout. This all-encompassing approach to planning is what is making CCP so successful. Unfortunately, First Nations are telling us it is also what is making it difficult to find adequate sources of funding.
