At Confederation Centre of the Arts we celebrate the origins and evolution of Canada through a rich variety of heritage and arts programming. We aim to inspire Canadians to consider our country’s past, present, and future through musical theatre, visual arts, and interactive experiences – truly the Centre for all Canadians.

The Centre acknowledges that the land on which it operates is the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We acknowledge with respect, the history, spirituality, and culture of the Mi’kmaq people—who have lived here for over 15,000 years.
